Judge in wealthy Calif. enclave bans all remodels, upgrades until new housing plans move forward

A Los Angeles County judge just upped the ante in one city’s sluggish approach to building affordable housing.

Beverly Hills has failed to progress plans for state-mandated new development and, as a result, Judge Curtis A. Kin blocked the city from issuing any other kinds of building permits at all, according to the Los Angeles Times. That means there would be no more residential remodels or upgrades until the city of Beverly Hills submits a blueprint for housing plans that pass state muster, per the Times.

For now, permits are still being processed as officials appeal the decision, the Times reported, but if the ruling moves forward, it could be a drastic wake-up call for the city and its residents.

Development consultant Andrew Slocum told the Times that he expects the “pain” of stalled permits to spur real change.

“The minute someone goes in there and they do not issue permits, it’ll be wildfire through the developer, the builder, the contractor community,” Slocum said. “It’s unheard of.”

Kin’s ruling is a particularly extreme rebuke of Beverly Hills’ housing failures, but the city is far from the only wealthy enclave that’s bristled at the state’s housing mandates.

Last year, the Bay Area town of Atherton generated heaps of angst and hand-wringing from residents — including, famously, Steph Curry — when it pushed forward a plan that would create 348 additional housing units by 2031 as mandated by the state. When the state demanded revisions to Atherton's proposal, some residents suggested revolting against state requirements altogether. The town is infamous for, year after year, containing the wealthiest zip code in the US.

Residents in Hillsborough, meanwhile, suggested fulfilling the technicalities but not the spirit of the state's housing requirement by building segregated housing for developmentally disabled adults, as SFGATE previously reported.

Other areas that have resisted development and failed to get a plan approved by the state are finding themselves subject to “builder’s remedy,” which allows developers to flout existing zoning codes as long as they set aside 20% of the planned units for lower income residents, according to CalMatters.

The threat of the builder’s remedy has already proved effective for pushing through new agreements in Santa Monica.

For Beverly Hills, the specter of a moratorium on new pools or bathroom revamps might just be enough to stop the city from “continuing to drag its feet.”

Beverly Hills in Crisis as Judge Mandates New Affordable Housing: “People Are Furious”

For inhabitants of the country’s most sought-after ZIP code, the unwelcome news came in December: In a move to pressure the city to zone for more affordable housing, a restrictive ruling by a Superior Court judge put a moratorium on Beverly Hills‘ right to approve any new home additions or project proposals by residents pending the approval of new homes for lower-income locals. In this ultra-exclusive community, where home remodeling is practically a sport, the notion that all renovations — from simple kitchen remodels to multimillion-dollar grotto installations — would require the ushering in of outsiders, or be delayed indefinitely, brought a particular unease.

That unease has turned to outrage for many living in the 5.71 square miles that make up the famed city, where rents and mortgages are more than double the national average. Following Superior Court Judge Curtis A. Kin’s Dec. 23 ruling, the city now finds itself fully entrenched in a battle over what’s become an urgent issue across many U.S. cities: the demand for significant and meaningful affordable housing projects. Many residents — already wary of the added foot traffic that will follow the opening of the Wilshire/Rodeo Metro station — just want the status quo to remain in Beverly Hills. Some argue that Beverly Hills simply does not have the space to accommodate any new housing at all — affordable or not.

“People are furious, they’re infuriated that a judge has the right to put a moratorium on residents on something that’s not their fight and not their fault,” Aaron Kirman, a Beverly Hills resident who represents exclusive properties across L.A. and appears on CNBC’s real estate reality series Listing Impossible, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “The reality is, Beverly Hills doesn’t have much land. I think that [Judge Kin] put everybody in a very complicated and compromising situation.”

The notion that the city lacks for space is laughable to affordable housing advocates. “Other cities may sort of have that argument — Beverly Hills definitely does not,” says Matt Gelfand, in-house litigator for Californians for Homeownership, the group whose suit against the city led to Kin’s ruling. “There is plenty of interest and there are plenty of places to put it,” he tells THR, adding that proposals to do just that have flooded in over the past months. “Beverly Hills is obviously a job center. It’s got enormous commercial use. So it needs to have housing.”

The Dec. 23 building moratorium decision amounts to a judicial check on the city of Beverly Hills, which has failed, for decades, to submit a blueprint for affordable housing that the state deems adequate. All California cities are required to submit a plan, known as the Housing Element, to the state every eight years outlining how they will accommodate a proportion of the population growth as California grapples with a statewide housing crisis.

In 2018, California ranked 49th in the U.S. in housing units per resident, with an estimated shortfall of about 3 million to 4 million homes. Beverly Hills, a city of 32,400 residents who overwhelmingly live in single-family homes, has seen its population shrink slightly over the past half-century even as California’s exploded, doubling to about 40 million. For decades, the wealthy city has managed to resist change in the name of, as many residents still say, “preserving its character.”

Beverly Hills has managed to maintain its cordon of chi-chi exclusivity in part because the Southern California Association of Governments, which distributes affordable housing projects throughout the region, long assigned the city a low number of required units. In 2018, The New York Times reported that a measly three affordable housing projects were required of Beverly Hills.

That number has since risen after a more housing-hawkish legislature established a stricter set of rules around how unit requirements are distributed. For the current eight-year cycle, Beverly Hills has been assigned a target of 3,104 additional homes. Three-quarters of these must be earmarked for low- and middle-income residents. In order to both reach the target number and maintain the city’s “character-preserving” zoning, units were proposed in some of the city’s fully leased office buildings and a local Jewish Community — even the headquarters of the Academy of Motion Pictures was included.

Alan Nissel, who heads residential and hospitality real estate development firm Wilshire Skyline, tells THR that Beverly Hills is stuck in an odd situation: If the city were to fully comply with California’s laws, provide more housing, and do its part to help out with the ongoing housing crisis, it would ultimately compromise the essential quality it’s so desperate to preserve, he says.

“[The city] needs to find a way to sufficiently address state needs without undermining its character,” he tells THR by phone. “And unfortunately, until now, it hasn’t done enough, legally and politically, to address the state’s concerns. As a result, its attempt to preserve that character has backfired.”

Following Kin’s moratorium, the city immediately issued a legal challenge to the ruling. As a result, permits are still being approved as this all plays out. But residents now fear another legal loophole will threaten Beverly Hills’ exclusive status.

The Builder’s Remedy Solution

The Housing Accountability Act, which passed in 2017 as California was in the midst of a years-long spike in population growth, limits local governments’ ability to “deny, reduce the density of, or make infeasible housing development projects” that are otherwise consistent with local standards and fit the current needs. The HAA includes the so-called “Builder’s Remedy” solution, which says that a city or county cannot veto a proposed housing project if the city has not adopted a Housing Element that has been approved by the state.

Beverly Hills’ ongoing failure to deliver a viable Housing Element blueprint has given hawkish real estate developers looking to build there, and build big, a rare opportunity. Without a housing blueprint blessed by the state, officials have unlocked the HAA’s full legal power and given developers a window to propose at least 14 tall residential buildings — structures widely loathed in Beverly Hills, where detached, single-family homes and the well-to-do people living inside are the norm. Because these proposals reserve the required 20 percent of their units for lower income renters, the leadership in the city of Beverly Hills — aware of the optics of the situation and likely eager to appear compliant with state mandates — now seem to have little choice but to give these projects a green light.

Or perhaps the city of Beverly Hills will stand firm against the proposed high-rise projects — one of which is at 17 stories — that the Builder’s Remedy solution has triggered. After all, the city of Santa Monica managed to negotiate a settlement agreement with a developer who’d utilized the same Builder’s Remedy process after the beachside city similarly failed to gain state approval for its own Housing Element. And members of the Beverly Hills City Council, facing a March 5 election, might mostly be concerned with winning over angry voters who despise the idea of living beside high towers and among their new, less-affluent residents.

The city’s latest revised Housing Element blueprint was set to be delivered to the state this week. Having cursorily read the document, Gelfand tells THR that the the new blueprint still doesn’t meet a key legal standard in presenting evidence that the existing uses on the sites listed are going to discontinue. Nissel, who also perused the blueprint, says that, though it is not necessarily a slam dunk for state approval, the revision reflects the city’s due diligence and a genuine effort to meet the housing needs outlined by the state.

Recently, a plan from Nissel’s firm — for a seven-story residential in an area of Beverly Hills zoned for three stories — was approved by the city in a vote of 5-0. Of the 54 units in the building, six of them are earmarked for low-income residents. This is well below 20 percent but, of course, higher than zero. Is meeting regulatory authorities halfway a solution for Beverly Hills? It certainly has the feel of a compromise — albeit one highly unlikely to bring in the thousands of affordable units needed and required. For Beverly Hills, it seems the time has come to play catch-up with some of its neighbors — like it or not.

“If [Beverly Hills] is going to grow, it has to grow vertically,” Nissel says. “It’s going the way of Hollywood and Santa Monica, for better or for worse. It’s just the new reality of things.”

Judge Halts Permits for Beverly Hills Home Renovations Over Lack of Affordable Housing

In December, a Los Angeles judge put a moratorium on building permit issuance in Beverly Hills except for new residential development, which would bring all home improvements in the neighborhood to a halt. “The ruling is a penalty for Beverly Hill’s failure to approve a sufficient blueprint for affordable housing,” reports to Los Angeles Times staff writer Liam Dillon.

The state has rejected five blueprints from Beverly Hills since summer 2021, the same year the California Association of Realtors, a housing advocacy group, filed the lawsuit. The city’s blueprint is required under state law to accommodate 3,104 new homes, three-quarters of which are affordable to low- and middle-income residents and subject to requirements to allow people of all incomes to live in every community and encourage more development near job centers and mass transit.

The problem? “The city’s strategy has been to try to continue to wall off its existing residential neighborhoods — those with the mega-mansions and apartments buildings alike — and instead concentrate growth in commercial areas through mixed-use development,” writes Dillon. State housing department officials say the city’s plans overestimate how many commercial properties like car dealerships and medical offices can (and realistically will) be converted into residential and don’t allow more affordable housing in the city’s whiter, more affluent neighborhoods. The judge agreed.

Housing advocates applauded the decision, which is considered among the most concrete consequences for wealthy communities resisting California’s push for cities to allow for housing to-date. Moratoriums have been issued in similar cases for some time, “[b]ut targeting a community as wealthy — and with as busy and expensive a home remodeling industry — as Beverly Hills is unprecedented,” Bill Fulton, a fellow at UC Berkeley’s Terner Center for Housing Innovation and an expert on California planning, told the Los Angeles Times.

Beverly Hills officials say they are appealing the decision and will continue to process permits normally in the interim. They also plan to submit additional information about the city’s housing blueprint to the state in the coming weeks in the hopes of getting it approved soon.

Beverly Hills Could See 17-Story Project Thanks to Calif.’s ‘Builder’s Remedy’ Rule

Proposed high-rise projects are in the works for Beverly Hills as developers take advantage of a controversial California state housing law that allows developers to circumvent local discretion and gain approval for affordable housing projects in jurisdictions that aren’t meeting their mandated goals.

Soundview Investment Partners wants to build a 17-story mixed-use tower with 56 units that would replace a two-story office building along Rodeo Drive, Urbanize reported. Max Netty, the local real estate investor leading the project, is seeking approval via the “Builder’s Remedy” provision at 145 South Rodeo Drive.

SEE ALSO: Bank OZK Supplies $62M Construction Loan for Lower Manhattan Apartments

Netty declined a request for comment from Commercial Observer.

The Builder’s Remedy provision was enacted in 1990 to help developers secure approvals on projects with 20 percent low-income units or 100 percent moderate-income units if a given city or locality is not in compliance with the state’s housing goals. Beverly Hills is one of the 174 jurisdictions currently out of compliance with California’s housing elements, according to the most recent data from the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). The city has thus far failed to obtain certification from the department for its housing plans, creating an opening for developers to fast-track the types of projects rarely seen in one of L.A.’s richest areas.

Developer Leo Pustilnikov is spearheading other housing projects using the Builder’s Remedy in Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Redondo Beach. That includes a proposal for a 19-story mixed-use development at 125-129 South Linden Drive, which would feature 165 units and a 73-room hotel, as well as a 14-story structure with 210 units at 211-217 South Hamilton Drive, both in Beverly Hills, according to a list of the city’s current development projects.

Beverly Hills has been tasked by the state to produce approximately 3,100 new housing units, including approximately 1,700 affordable units, by 2029. Yet since 2021, the state’s HCD has twice sent the city back to the drawing board for revisions to its housing plan. The HCD’s most recent compliance report indicates the city’s new plan is currently under review, though it does not specify when a decision will be made.
