The Target’s been stalled since August 2014, when a judge voided the project’s construction permits as the result of a lawsuit brought by noted NIMBY group the La Mirada Avenue Neighborhood Association, their lawyer Robert Silverstein, and an additional group, Citizens Coalition Los Angeles. They said that the building’s height “disrupts the existing character of the neighborhood,” and hoped to see it torn down. (The project was a seasoned target of neighborhood groups’ lawsuits by then, having been sued twice before.) The project heads to the City Council next.
