The Derby In Trouble (Update!)…

I’ve gotten a few requests asking for an update on The Derby sitch, so here it is (via Franklin Avenue):

The Skunks of Los Feliz, which has been closely following the impending destruction of the Derby/Louise’s building at the corner of Hillhurst and Los Feliz, points us to a new Save the Derby blog. …

As first reported earlier this summer, Adler Realty plans to secure a zoning change allowing for a mixed-used housing/commercial development on the site. LottaLiving.com quickly launched the Save the Derby site, and the the Los Angeles Conservancy’s Modern Committee also got involved. …

Now, it looks like Adler is looking to bring Whole Foods into the space — at least, if these renderings provided to the Greater Griffith Park Neighborhood Council are any indication…

Meanwhile, the Skunks suggest attending the Greater Griffith Park Neighborhood Council meeting on Nov. 10 to express your concerns over the proposal — and sign the petition.

UPDATE: The creator of the Derby blog notes in the comments below that there’s actually another meeting you should attend:

I’m worried though your site and the Skunks site both have a date for a meeting on Nov. 10th. However the postcard we recieved in the mail stated a neighborhood meeting with Adler Realty on Oct 26th at 7pm to discuss the Derby/Hillhurst Square.
