As he strode from door to door on a misty night in Santa Monica recently with his printouts of registered voters and his colorful pamphlets, Jerry Snyder looked for all intents and purposes like a typical politician on the move. "Hi," he said, thrusting his hand out to strangers who eyed him warily from their doorsteps. "I'm Jerry Snyder and I'd like to talk to you." But Snyder is no politician. And he is not exactly looking for votes.

One of Los Angeles' longtime developers is betting big on the revival of Hollywood as he launches work on a $138-million speculative office development near Santa Monica Boulevard. After dusting off plans for an office complex first conceived before the 2008 recession brought development to a halt, Jerry Snyder has begun construction of his 959 Seward project, even though he has no tenants lined up. Snyder, who has been in the real estate business since 1949, thinks demand is strong enough among businesses in creative fields such as entertainment to justify the risk of building a campus-style complex catering primarily to them in a part of Hollywood known as the Media District.

As a developer scaled back plans to build near a proposed high school in North Hollywood, the Los Angeles Unified School District has backed out of working with that developer to build a middle school about two miles away. School district officials want to open a middle school at Valley Plaza, a shopping center beside the Hollywood Freeway. The school district was negotiating with developer Jerry Snyder for a 1,629-seat school near a retail complex Snyder is already building.

While developer Jerry Snyder is busy constructing the commercial buildings of the '90s, his own office remains solidly in the '70s. Visitors who walk into Snyder's penthouse office on Wilshire Boulevard will feel themselves sink into a thick, sculpted carpet colored in shades of tan, brown and rust. In the corner, a huge, circular coffee table that glows in brass and amber-colored glass is surrounded by lounge-like chairs upholstered in a material that resembles brown corduroy.

A veteran Los Angeles developer stepped forward Wednesday and pledged to city officials to bail out the troubled North Hollywood commercial development project. Seeking the blessing of the Community Redevelopment Agency, Jerry Snyder said he can satisfy the demand for commercial and retail development around the new subway station and accommodate a new high school nearby as well. "We will take it over and we will get it done," Snyder, an experienced developer, told the CRA board.

In a town known for its bountiful buffets, the most unusual one is staged at the Luxor Hotel-Casino, where freeloaders fly in for a feeding frenzy. We're talking bats, at a bug buffet, served after sunset not inside the pyramid-shaped hotel, but above it, in its famous "sky beam." The sight of hundreds, maybe thousands, of bats flying frenetically in a column of white light against the black sky is so dramatic that motorists sometimes pull off to the side of Interstate 15 to watch.
