Here in Los Angeles we read a lot of news about real estate development, real estate being the sun about which every local planet orbits. And this reporting mostly tells the truth, and probably nothing but the truth, but for the most part never the whole truth. Just for instance, consider the property at 1330 W. Pico Blvd . This parcel has been in the news since October 2017, when real estate developer Sandstone Properties bought it for $42 million, planning to build yet another hotel. Here’s The Real Deal’s story on the purchase .
The reporting rightly focuses on the motions themselves, although, interestingly, not all the motions. 3 After all, without the motions, the rezonings, the tax incentives, and so on, the projects couldn’t get built. What all of these stories about this Sandstone project lack, though, what most such stories about all such projects are missing, is any sense of where the motions come from, Jordan Why Not Zer0.2 Andre Agassi Buy Online how Council offices and developers collaborate to obtain the myriad permissions required for something like this proposed hotel to get built. 4
And that story is amazing, really unexpectedly appalling. 5 It’s revealed in astonishing detail by a massive set of emails I recently received from CD1 , spanning more than two and a half years of discussions between lobbyists from at least three distinct firms 6 repping Eri Kroh and Sandstone, CD1 planning director Gerald Gubatan, and various City of LA staffers in City Planning and elsewhere beginning in August 2017 and continuing to this day.
The lobbyists actually write and revise the motions that Cedillo introduces to further their cause. 7 Gubatan works closely with the lobbyists basically in opposition to City civil service staff’s attempts to enforce the City’s laws and rules, and is outright contemptuous of their abilities. 8 Cedillo himself stays distant from the process, but in no way detached. He met with the project’s zillionaire developer Eri Kroh and lobbyist Lali DeAztlan in August 2017, two months before the purchase was final. Presumably this is when Cedillo greenlighted the project.
