Ask Chris: What’s the Deal With That Target in Hollywood? They’ve Been Building It Forever

Our in-house historian has the answer

The store has been in the works for more than six years, and judging from the stop order the city issued in August, that Archer Farms salsa you like won’t be available at Sunset and Western anytime soon. The activists who sued complain that the 74-foot-tall building is twice as high as allowed. Target’s options seem to be: settle the suit, persuade the city to retroactively change the zoning code, or demolish and start over.
