Los Angeles city planning commissioners Thursday approved plans to build a grocery store at the corner of Ventura and Topanga Canyon boulevards, despite protests from neighboring merchants who complained that their businesses will suffer. The grocery store was a compromise between the developer, Ventura Topanga Partners, and the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization, which sued last year to block construction of an office complex that included two 13-story towers.

After several years of much-debated planning and revisions, the first stage of construction is under way for an expanded shopping center at the corner of Ventura and Topanga Canyon boulevards. Construction of a Ralphs supermarket on the busy corner, approved by the Los Angeles City Council a month ago, should be finished early next year, said Harris Toibb, president of Ventura-Topanga Partners, L.P., which owns the 9.8-acre site.

The owner of a shopping center at Ventura and Topanga Canyon boulevards on Monday appealed the Los Angeles Planning Commission's approval of plans for a competing grocery store, saying increased traffic from the project would create hazards. But the developer of the proposed Ralphs supermarket accused the owner of the neighboring property, Stan Weiss, of trying to protect the business of his main tenant, a Vons grocery store.

An investment team has scrapped plans to build a controversial high-rise office complex on Ventura Boulevard in Woodland Hills and instead will try to update and expand the existing shopping center on their property, it was announced Friday. The sharply down-sized plan for the 7.8-acre parcel at the northeast corner of Ventura and Topanga Canyon boulevards has won the support of the Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization, said the group's president, Bob Gross.

The Planning and Land Use Management Committee recommended that the City Council uphold a decision by the Planning Commission to allow the construction of a Ralphs supermarket and other retail shops next to an existing Vons grocery store.
