The West Hollywood City Council decided Monday night to delay action on Brass Properties' request to demolish two houses on Bonner Drive while the developer and representatives from the West Hollywood West Residents Assn. formulate a master plan for the two properties and others on Rosewood Avenue owned by Brass.
Brass has agreed to work out a plan with West Hollywood West representatives and city staff that would:
Specify building height limits and require compatible architectural style for development on Bonner Drive and Rosewood Avenue;
Require that Brass first develop its Rosewood Avenue property, where two damaged buildings now stand;
Require that the developers post a bond to assure compliance with the plan.
The plan is aimed at preventing the developer from demolishing properties and leaving empty lots.
"I'm not against them building if they start building the minute they tear down," said Harriett Hassler, a resident of Bonner Drive for 39 years.
