DreamWorks site gets OK

Gov't. greenlights Playa Vista development

The developer of DreamWorks’ intended new home said Wednesday the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have concluded that the Playa Vista project will not harm endangered species.

Opponents of the development near Marina del Rey had prompted a review of federal permits issued to Playa Vista on the grounds that information on endangered species in the area was not available at the time the permits were granted.

As a result of the agencies’ findings, construction of a freshwater marsh — part of a planned restoration of a deteriorated marsh west of the site — will continue unimpeded. Workers are also demolishing several buildings at the former Hughes Aircraft factory, where DreamWorks has expressed interest in setting up shop.

The old Hughes hangars are to become the heart of a proposed Entertainment, Media and Technology District at the eastern edge of the 1,087-acre site.
