Getting Results – Resolving special zoning problems

JMBM lawyers are skilled at resolving special zoning or other use restriction problems that complicate construction projects. On behalf of a developer client, we obtained the first successful approval under the new Los Angeles Mixed Use Ordinance for a project that included 540 apartments and 27,000 square feet of commercial space.

In another instance, we successfully tried a highly controversial case arising from the demolition of an old structure without permit in downtown Los Angeles, crafting a settlement that resulted in new development of nearly 1,000 apartment units.
