We have a feeling that “Media Center North” will sooner or later be turning into Airport Adjacent South. They don’t seem to be having too much success in finding a prospective pool of “media” tenants clamoring to locate in that glare-y, treeless part of Burbank next to Sun Valley.
This is an odd tradeoff:
In return for an [development] extension, Media Center officials are agreeing to several public benefits that would help the city meet the policies in its Burbank 2035 plan.
Media Center North Development would also build or pay for construction of a bicycle lane on Hollywood Way between Avon Street and Thornton Avenue.
That’s the perfect place for a bike lane. Will they be liable for it as well? It’ll be quite an instructive outing for the school kids to have to go over there and watch all of the two-wheelers try to merge into traffic as soon as they get past Thornton.
What will eventually go in there? Film labs, special efx houses, editing bays?
