A proposed 18-story tower at 5901 Sunset Boulevard with 274,000 square feet of office space threatens to loom over a residential neighborhood across the street on Bronson Avenue and cause serious traffic and quality of life problems — and community activists aren’t happy.

On Monday and Tuesday, though, the Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council and the City Council’s Planning and Land-Use Management Committee will hear from the developer, Hudson Pacific Properties, and residents alike — and neighborhood activists need your help.

On Monday, Hudson Pacific Properties will pitch its mega-project to the Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council. The developer needs a General Plan amendment, a zone change and height district change for the project — all things that are not currently allowed at 5901 Sunset Boulevard.

On Tuesday, the developer will make another pitch to the City Council’s powerful Planning and Land-Use Management Committee (PLUM) at City Hall in room 350 at 2:30 p.m.

Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council and PLUM members may offer their blessings, but community activists want Hollywood residents to join them at the meetings, voice their opposition to the developer’s over-sized plans and create some kind of change.

“Think of the noise, as many of these delivery trucks to the food market at 5901 Sunset make early morning deliveries, disturbing the sleep of families, elderly and disabled residents,” says Jason Vogel, a property owner on Bronson Avenue. “Think of the kids and their ability to function in school.”

Vogel adds, “This is not about jobs. It’s about greed. Hudson Pacific has alternative sites to build offices. They want to maximize this site, without any regard to the impact on the neighborhood.”

The Hollywood Studio District Neighborhood Council meeting  will take place tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the gallery space on the first floor of the Louis B. Mayer Building at 5500 Hollywood Boulevard.
