Wyvernwood Redevelopment Project Proposal Under L.A. City Review

The Wyvernwood Garden Apartments Project appears to be moving ahead despite vocal protests from community members who say they’re fighting gentrification and the displacement of longtime residents.

The community renovation plan has been in flux for nearly a decade but today the Los Angeles City Council’s Housing Committee approved a $50,000 fund to assess a proposal by the project’s developer, the Fifteen Group.

The proposed project would substantially transform the 75-year-old Wyvernwood apartment complex into a mixed-use community by adding additional units as well as commercial and community park space.
