  • Pretty lively comment thread on that Beverly Hills Patch article on the Century City station. The director of Bevery Hills USD is accusing Joel Epstein of being a shill for Century City developers. It seems to be unfathomable to him that someone could advocate an intelligent choice for a subway station location because they want to see Metro succeed and not because they have some financial motivation.

  • With all due respect to Mr. Alpern over at City Watch, he’s all about limiting so-called “overdevelopment”, not promoting TOD. Transit oriented development needs some density, even in suburbia. It doesn’t mean you have to drop 30-story monoliths everywhere, but how about 3-5 stories of mixed-use something?

    Fact is people are flipping out over even relatively low-rise projects, and that’s holding transit back.
