Hotel Development Gets Community Focus on Website

Greg Lane is a resident of Culver City who does not just take things as they come; he does what he can to make things better. When Sandstone Properties held a meeting at El Marino Language Academy on April 17, 2019 to offer the community some information about the proposed hotel development on Jefferson Boulevard, Lane was in attendance, and not impressed.

“The community meeting they had was horrible. [There were] no sketches or details of the parking service they intend to build. No examples of a “living green wall” [that they discussed] so most of the meeting was spent explaining things which [it seemed] no one understood. I got the impression they tried to do the absolute minimum required to do a public meeting.” ( See also

So, Lane created a website to foster more dialogue, gather some information, and dig deeper into what the hotel would mean in terms of changing Jefferson Boulevard, for better or worse.  Go to

Neighbors and residents have begun to click in and fill out the survey questions, which Lane will bring to the next community meeting on the development. The date for the next meeting has yet to be announced.

Sandstone is building The Albany hotel that’s set to have 730 rooms in Downtown Los Angeles.
