Have you driven down Ocean Avenue lately and seen the Civic Center Village going up and up and up?

This construction is 320 units of affordable and market-rate housing and the parking to go with it. The enormity and density of this project is appalling. If there is any open space in there I can’t see it. To me it looks like Santa Monica is building a slum of the future. If the project at the trailer park is going to be anything like this then fasten your seat belts, the roller coaster at the Santa Monica Pier isn’t the only thing going downhill around here.
