The planned Movietown Plaza complex of condo towers, senior apartments, and retail spaces was approved last year by the West Hollywood City Council. It will replace the dingy Trader Joe’s shopping center on the site, at Santa Monica Boulevard between Poinsettia and Fuller.
Nothing has happened to the site so far, though. So we checked with Casden Properties, the developer.
Here is the response: They are working on a construction schedule now, and hope to be hitting the site in 3-4 months.
And don’t worry, Trader Joe’s will be staying – and eventually moving into a brand new structure on the site.
