Amoeba Records in Hollywood is going away - at least at it's current location
The Los Angeles City Council voted today to grant final approvals tothe 26-story towerthat would replace the Amoeba Records store on Sunset Boulevard inHollywood.
The council also voted to deny an appeal of the project brought by the Coalition to Preserve LA, which charged that the project should have included 15 percent affordable housing (not the 5 percent the developer has proposed) and that the city should not have deemed it a “Sustainable Communities Project,” a status that allows the developer to have a streamlined environmental review.
This doesn't necessarily mean that Amoeba is going away for good - it just means it won't be at it's current location for very much longer
