A developer who last month proposed building a senior citizen apartment complex and commercial center on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks has instead revived an earlier plan to construct an office complex on the site, the developer's attorney said Wednesday. Benjamin M. Reznik, attorney for developer Jacky Gamliel, said discussions with Los Angeles officials over the senior citizen housing proposal stalled, so the developer plans to pursue plans for a 90,000-square-foot office complex.

A developer has lost the first round of his legal battle to build an office complex on the site that once housed the Scene of the Crime bookstore in Sherman Oaks, attorneys for the developer and the city said Wednesday. But developer Jacky Gamliel will pursue other legal options in his quest to build a 90,000-square-foot, three-story office and retail complex on Ventura Boulevard between Woodman and Ventura Canyon avenues, attorney Benjamin M. Reznik said.

A judge said Wednesday that he will decide within two weeks whether to allow a controversial office complex to be built on a site that once housed the Scene of the Crime bookstore on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks. After a two-hour hearing in which the developer's attorney accused Los Angeles city officials of illegally delaying permits needed for the project, Superior Court Judge John Zebrowski said he would take the matter under submission.

A developer who has tangled with Sherman Oaks residents for years over his controversial proposal to build an office complex along Ventura Boulevard has unveiled a new and unusual plan for the site--a combination of retail stores and senior citizen apartments. The site, between Woodman and Ventura Canyon avenues, is best known as the former site of the Scene of the Crime bookstore and other small businesses. So far, reaction from residents and the area's councilman has been guarded.

Despite mounting opposition from residents, a proposal for the city to subsidize a senior housing complex at Woodman Avenue and Ventura Boulevard is moving smoothly through the approvals process. The city Housing Department late last month sent Mayor Richard Riordan a report recommending approval of a $2.4-million loan for site acquisition and preparation to developer Jacky Gamliel. A Los Angeles City Council committee is scheduled to review the department's recommendation Sept.

After five years of watching Ventura Boulevard explode with development and traffic, the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan came within an eyelash of final approval on Dec. 18. Ignoring the pleas of homeowners and the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn., Councilwoman Joan Milke Flores withheld her crucial vote, a highly unusual move, thus delaying further City Council action on the plan until Jan. 4. This could allow time for other developers with out-of-scale projects to squeak through.

A sweeping plan to limit future commercial projects along Ventura Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley, imposing tens of millions of dollars in fees on developers to pay for measures to speed traffic, was approved Friday by the Los Angeles City Council. The 13-0 vote on the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan ended a five-year campaign to control growth along the thoroughfare--the Valley's "main street."

The City Council on Tuesday gave tentative approval to a sweeping set of building rules aimed at controlling development along Ventura Boulevard, the San Fernando Valley's "Main Street." Officials say that the measure also will generate money to cope with increasing traffic along the strip. Initiated five years ago in response to an intense building boom, the so-called "Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan" will affect all 17 miles of the commercial corridor north of the Santa Monica Mountains.
