About two weeks after Los Angeles planning officials approved a fully enclosed arena as part of a megadevelopment proposed for Warner Center, a group of Woodland Hills residents along with a developer, have filed an appeal against the project.

If approved, the 34-acre proposed site developed by global firm Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield will turn a largely vacant Promenade mall into a district with 5,610 on-site parking spaces along with a mixed-use district with about 1,400 multi-family residential units, roughly 244,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, about 630,000 square feet of office space, with a hotel with up to 570  hotel rooms.

In a 13-page appeal, Gina K. Thornburg, a Woodland Hills resident, community organizer and founder of Coalition for Valley Neighborhoods, wrote that she was concerned that the city didn’t require the developer to build affordable units.

“I am aggrieved on behalf of the many people I know, including many millennials, who work full time or more while living with friends or family because the rent in L.A. is so high, they cannot form their own households,” Thornburg wrote in the document.

The appeal comes a few weeks after city planners recommended a fully enclosed 7,500-seat arena as part of the massive development proposed for Woodland Hills that was half the capacity of the originally proposed 15,000-seat stadium.
