West Hollywood will have the nation’s highest minimum wage. Business owners are not happy

Thanks to a bump in his pay last summer, Norberto Ruiz was able to afford a $150 air conditioner to keep his family’s two-bedroom home in North Hollywood from feeling like a furnace when temperatures soared.

The Honduran immigrant, who works at a liquor store in West Hollywood, saw his hourly pay jump by $1 to $16. For the first time, the 53-year-old, his wife, two daughters and in-laws could enjoy the simple pleasure of a slightly chilled living room, due chiefly to a small pay raise.

“I don’t think people understand how much an extra dollar or two can change people’s lives,” Ruiz said. “We’ll never be a rich family, but at least we can be happy.”

Ruiz and many low-wage workers will see another increase Saturday, when West Hollywood will officially have the highest minimum wage in the nation: $19.08 an hour. That puts the city of 35,000 people ahead of Seattle, San Francisco and Denver.

The increase comes at a time of rising rent, gas prices and inflation.

Employers facing financial hardships can apply for a one-year delay via a waiver with the city. Still, many small-business owners in West Hollywood are speaking out against the higher wage, saying they are reaching a breaking point and need relief to avoid closing.

“These pay increases are about superficiality and about opportunistic politicians who are just trying to make a name for themselves,” said West Hollywood restaurateur Lucian Tudor, a Romanian immigrant. “They don’t make any sense for small businesses who were never consulted. If we go out of business, that means workers will lose their jobs too.”

Tudor is the chief executive of La Boheme, a French and Japanese upscale restaurant on Santa Monica Boulevard that relied on an expanded outdoor seating area to survive the COVID-19 lockdowns, when many other businesses were forced to close.

But the challenge brought by the pandemic, he said, doesn’t compare to his current financial headaches. Tudor said his business lost $100,000 in the first fiscal quarter this year, after the city in January implemented a $1 minimum wage increase for medium to large businesses, bringing it to $17.50 an hour.

He has cut his staff from 120 to 80 over the last 12 months and slashed 1,000 working hours in an attempt to trim expenditures.

Tudor, 36, said his business is “not a failure.” La Boheme averages sales of $600,000 a month, according to Tudor, and hosts 400 people for brunch and 400 for dinner on Saturdays, the busiest day.

Instead of an across-the-board raise in minimum wages, he would favor New York City’s wage policy. There, food service workers must make $15 an hour, but up to $5 can be made from tips, meaning owners can pay as little as $10 an hour.

Tudor said members of his staff easily clear $400 in tips a night and don’t need the same pay increase as hotel workers and others in the city.

Brett Latteri, 44, owner of the Den on Sunset, agrees with Tudor. Latteri said the staff at the bar and restaurant is down to 22 from 30, and the latest increase isn’t “just a few thousand dollars.”

“You can be laying out hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in extra payroll,” Latteri said. “It’s not just strictly wages.”

The City Council’s wage increase in 2021 included a stipulation that restaurants provide a minimum of 12 days of paid personal leave time and 10 additional days of unpaid time, he said.

“Many employees are seasonal workers in this industry and now, whenever they quit, let’s say in six months, we’re going to have to pay for vacation every year,” Latteri said.

Part-time employees are provided leave on a pro-rata basis, according to Laura Biery, economic development director for West Hollywood.

Genevieve Morrill, chief executive of the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, said businesses are too easily seen as villains.

“We believe in a living wage for all employees,” she said, “but we also need to correct the false narrative of how successful small businesses are doing.”

Councilmember John Heilman said the council is not likely to reconsider the wage increase soon but is willing to help small businesses in other ways, such as beefing up security. The city voted in May to fund four new sheriff’s positions after cutting funding a year earlier.

Some West Hollywood residents applaud the City Council’s action as progressive.

Resident Jorge Zeparak, 52, works at the Beverly Hills Hotel as a daytime room service server. He and thousands of Southern California hotel workers are planning to strike Saturday as their contracts expire.

He said many of his friends who work at hotels in West Hollywood have seen their livelihoods improve over the last few years due to salary increases.

“The minimum wage has been life-changing for workers in our city,” texted Zeparak, a native of Peru. “The reality is that hotel companies are making record profits while workers are barely getting by.”

Experts differ on what constitutes a living wage. The Economic Policy Institute estimates that an individual needs to make $49,000 a year to live in metropolitan Los Angeles. MIT’s living wage calculator lists an average for one childless adult at $21.53 an hour. A recent federal report said workers “earning the federal or prevailing state or local minimum wage” cannot afford a modest two-bedroom rental home at fair market rent anywhere in the United States.

Ellen Scott, a professor of sociology at the University of Oregon, said paying a living wage isn’t just an altruistic pursuit. She argued that the vast majority of increased wages are redistributed to the local economy.

“Utilities and rent are being paid in a more timely manner, and clothing that workers couldn’t afford for their kids is being purchased,” Scott said. “That’s also groceries now being purchased, and potentially the occasional luxury of going out with one’s family.”

L.A. County Supervisor Lindsey Horvath, who served as a West Hollywood councilmember in 2021, said she was delighted by both the wage increase and the paid time off.

“I’m very proud that we are looking for ways to ensure that people’s mental and physical well-being is protected in their jobs,” she said. “That we are not saying that people have to choose between being able to afford rent and taking time off to care for themselves or a loved one.”

Horvath, whose district includes much of the Westside and San Fernando Valley, said she understands that some small businesses are struggling. But she views the policies in West Hollywood as aspirational for other cities.

“That’s why you see communities like West Hollywood stepping up and saying, ‘We have to do better,’” she said, “not just in our talk, but in the actions and in the laws that we pass, and that was what was intended with this policy.”

Darryl Maximilian Robinson Notes 50th Anniversary As Stage Performer

North Hollywood theatregoers most recently observed the work of stage veteran Darryl Maximilian Robinson as The Announcer in the March 11, 2020 preview performance of The Ark Theatre of North Hollywood's staging of "The Dick Tracy Radio Show." NH playgoers may also recall Mr. Robinson's roles as the debonair, but aging leading man Ernest in Tad Mosel's "Impromptu" as part of a 2016 evening of short works entitled "Just 4 Fun" and as the determined prosecutor District Attorney Flint in a 2017 revival of Ayn Rand'...

North Hollywood theatregoers most recently observed the work of stage veteran Darryl Maximilian Robinson as The Announcer in the March 11, 2020 preview performance of The Ark Theatre of North Hollywood's staging of "The Dick Tracy Radio Show." NH playgoers may also recall Mr. Robinson's roles as the debonair, but aging leading man Ernest in Tad Mosel's "Impromptu" as part of a 2016 evening of short works entitled "Just 4 Fun" and as the determined prosecutor District Attorney Flint in a 2017 revival of Ayn Rand's classic courtroom drama "Night of January 16th" both presented at The Lincoln Stegman Theatre.

What most North Hollywood theatre acolytes may not know is that Darryl Maximilian Robinson has been performing live theatre around the country for five decades.

50 years ago this month, on December 21, 1973, a skinny, apprehensive, stage-frightened, 13-year-old, African-American kid walked upon a makeshift stage in the gym at a now nonexistent middle school, the West Side of Chicago's Robert H. Lawrence Upper Grade Center, to play the role of Mr. Jones in that Chicago Public Schools facility's holiday play for students and staff entitled "A Black Christmas Carol." By the end of the second school day performance of that work ( after receiving ample laughs and applause ), the kid knew, above all else, he wanted to be an actor, a professional actor in The Theatre, and he would do all that would be required of him as a Student of The Performing Arts to achieve that goal.

During his high school years, ( as a Student Performer at Albert G. Lane Technical High School and Whitney M. Young Magnet High School for The Performing Arts, and as A Guest Student Actor Performer at Josephinum High School for Girls ) he would go on to perform many roles and receive educational training at many facilities. He would happily work with numerous professional arts educators, who were also working professionals in The Windy City's entertainment industry, including four years ( 1975-1979 ) giving public performances and receiving quality musical theatre training with The Chicagoland High School Theatrical Troupe.

And by 1980, he was a working, paid for his craft, stage performer. His 1980s stage credits would include roles with The National Shakespeare Company of New York, The Indianapolis Shakespeare Festival and The King Richard's Faire and Bristol Renaissance Faire of Wisconsin, and St. Louis' historic Goldenrod Showboat docked at Laclede's Landing.

Ten years after his first appearance on the stage, he was honored to play The City of Chicago's Historic Founder. For a time, in 1983 ( just two years after winning the 1981 Fort Wayne News-Sentinel Reviewer's Recognition Award for Outstanding Thespian of the Season for a gallery of his stage roles, particularly for the part of Fagin in a revival of Lionel Bart's classic musical "Oliver!" at Enchanted Hills Playhouse of Syracuse, Indiana ), for the highly-regarded Urban Gateways arts and educational organization, Chicago-born and stage-trained actor and play director Darryl Maximilian Robinson, toured to numerous public and private schools throughout the greater Chicagoland area playing the Caribbean Island-born, African-American, French and English speaking Frontiersman and Founder of The City of Chicago, Jean-Baptiste Pointe DuSable ( 1745-1818 ), in local playwright Alice Rubio's highly-effective, one-act historical drama "Chicago: A Tale of One City."

On the occasion of his 50th Anniversary as An American Stage Performer, Darryl Maximilian Robinson discusses a few of his most early Chicago Stage Roots and recent Greater Los Angeles area stage endeavors during the September 19, 2016 edition of veteran entertainment journalist and reporter Ron Brewington's Hollywood-based, internet performing arts television show "The Actor's Choice" Episode 2.37. After an intriguing interview with Guest Actor John Ruskin, Founder of The Ruskin School of Acting in Santa Monica, California, Excaliber Shakespeare Company of Chicago Founder Darryl Maximilian Robinson talks of his training and experiences during the second half-hour of this informational program with Host Ron Brewington.

Metro-adjacent development slated for 5519 N Elmer Avenue in North Hollywood

A block from Metro's North Hollywood Station, a roughly 109-year-old residential building is poised to make way for multifamily housing, according to an application submitted this month to the L.A. Department of City Planning.

Dariyoush Kohanof of Elmer 26, LLC, the applicant behind the proposed project at 5519 N. Elmer Avenue, is seeking entitlements for the construction of a new six-story building featuring 44 studio and one-bedroom apartments above semi-subterranean parking for 28 vehicles.

California Development & Design, Inc.

The proposed project will require the approval of Transit Oriented Communities incentives permitting a larger building than otherwise required by zoning rules. In exchange, 5 of the new apartments would be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

California Development & Design is designing 5519 Elmer, which is portrayed in a series of renderings a contemporary low-rise structure capped by a rooftop amenity deck. The project is nearly identical in concept to the firm's numerous other projects within the City of Los Angeles.

Google Maps

The new project is one of a handful now in the works surrounding North Hollywood Station, including a 127-unit mixed-use project from Richman Group which is now wrapping up work and a proposed 128-unit complex from Grubb Properties.

Those infill projects serve as a prelude to a larger multi-phase development planned for the adjacent subway station's park-and-ride lot, where Trammell Crow Company intends to spend $1 billion to construct high-rise housing, office space, and retail.

The Laemmle NoHo 7 theater in North Hollywood is up for redevelopment, according to an application submitted last week to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Grubb Properties, a North Carolina-based real estate development firm which acquired the property at 5240 Lankershim Boulevard for $9.5 million in May 2021, is seeking approvals to raze the existing theater building, clearing the way for the construction of a new seven-story building featuring 128 rental apartments above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and semi-subterranean parking for 71 vehicles.

Grubb Properties

The developer's entitlement application relies on Transit Oriented Communities incentives to permit a structure that is larger than otherwise permitted by zoning regulations. In exchange, 13 of the proposed apartments would be set aside for rent as affordable housing at the extremely low-income level.

Urban Architecture Lab and MJS Design Group lead the design team for the project, which is called the Link Apartments NoHo.

According to an informational brochure created by Grubb Properties, the company expects to spend $68.1 million on the North Hollywood project, or roughly $582,000 per unit.

Completion is expected in 2025, per the brochure, which also indicates that Grubb Properties is working to secure Chipotle as an anchor tenant for the ground-floor retail space.

Google Maps

The project is one of a number of new mixed-use developments in the works surrounding North Hollywood Station, which serves as a terminus for both the G Line busway and the B Line subway. Construction is already in progress for a 127-unit development from Richman Group adjacent to the transit hub, and a $1-billion high-rise complex is slated to replace the station's surface parking lots in the near term future.

Grubb Properties is planning several similar projects in the City of Los Angeles, including one development already in entitlements at 950 S. Berendo Street in Koreatown.

‘Game-changer for the Valley’: Almost 1,500 new housing units to be built at North Hollywood Metro station

As part of an ongoing Metro effort to build housing and community around transportation hubs, a new mixed-use development dubbed District NoHo is coming to North Hollywood’s Metro station.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Friday to approve the 15-acre project, greenlighting a massive development that will include 1,481 residential units as well as office, retail and restaurant space.

A quarter of the units will be rent-restricted, more than double the ratio required for the city’s density bonus.

“District NoHo will be a transformative project for this city,” City Council President Paul Krekorian said in a statement. Krekorian represents Council District 2, which includes North Hollywood.

“This is a truly transit-oriented development that will enable hundreds of Angelenos to live, work, study, shop and enjoy recreation without driving, parking or riding in anything other than zero-emission public transportation,” he said.

Dec. 8, 2023

The project will also bring to the area 750 parking spots reserved for Metro customers, and two acres of open space for the public as well as three shopping plazas. The North Hollywood station is Metro’s third busiest.

District NoHo is one of Metro’s several joint development projects, which are real estate collaborations between Metro and private developers built on Metro land to create more housing around transit.

The project will feature improvements to North Hollywood’s Metro station, including a new entrance to the B Line subway on the west side of Lankershim Boulevard, improvements to the G Line busway terminus, and new internal streets and walkways to break up the large development site, a city report said.

Metro has made the ambitious commitment to build 10,000 housing units in Los Angeles County by 2031, “with the goal of contributing to solving Southern California’s housing crisis,” the agency said in a news release in July. Half of the units are intended to be rent-restricted for lower- to moderate-income households.

While District NoHo will include 366 rent-restricted units, some community members say the project isn’t doing enough to create affordable housing. Reimagine District NoHo, an effort driven by the nonprofit NoHo Home Alliance, has been fighting for the inclusion of more affordable units.

“The government’s obligation is to do the most good for the most people,” said Desmond Faison, with Reimagine District NoHo. “I think that it misses the mark. … We’re building a monolith to capitalism.”

Faison said that only the most wealthy North Hollywood residents would be able to afford to live in District NoHo’s market rate units. Glenn Block, another North Hollywood resident who is involved with Reimagine District NoHo, said the 15 acres the development will be built on could be put to better use.

“This project fails on every level,” he said.

The property will have nearly 100 more rent-restricted units than the original proposal, according to Metro project manager Marie Sullivan. The number of affordable units is limited because funding for the units comes from many different sources, all of which have restricted budgets.

“There’s only so much affordable housing funding that comes from federal, state and local sources each year,” Sullivan said.

Metro is also using income from the market-rate units to fund other aspects of the project, including a park and shopping plazas, she said.

“We need the revenue from market-rate homes to fund a lot of these public benefits,” she said.

District NoHo will also boost the community by creating roughly 10,000 jobs during construction, according to a city report, and an additional 2,500 jobs through property operations. Construction is expected to generate $1 billion.

The development of the property includes the demolition of nearly 50,000 square feet of surface parking lots and industrial space.

The project, which has been in the works since 2015, “provides a model of sustainable development for the whole region,” Krekorian said. “This is a game-changer for the Valley.”

Meet District NoHo, a new North Hollywood development and one of the largest in the NoHo Arts District’s 20+ year history.

Since this is the largest development that NoHo has ever experienced, can you give us a description of the entire development?

As a joint development effort with Metro, District NoHo will transform the underutilized 15-acre site at the B Line (Red) and G Line (Orange) station into an arts district-inspired urban village. District NoHo will bring much-needed housing, office and retail steps from transit and it will serve as a gathering space to amplify the thriving community of North Hollywood.

This transit-oriented development includes approximately 1,500 multifamily residential units, over 300 of which will be affordable, 100,000SF of community serving retail and restaurant space, and 500,000SF of office space that are all integrated with a new, integrated transit center as well as bicycle and parking facilities.

Also, a timeline (estimation) when the developments will begin and be completed?

District NoHo will be constructed in multiple phases over a 15-year period. The first phase will include the consolidation of the transit facilities at Metro’s North Hollywood Station. This would begin after project approval by the City and the Metro Board, which is anticipated in early 2024.

What entertainment and arts attractions will you have in the mall? Are you still planning an outdoor theatre/performance area?

Given that District NoHo is in the heart of the NoHo Arts District, it will celebrate and showcase the flourishing arts community. A Strategic Art Plan is being developed with Metro for both static and digital artwork throughout the District. To be designed with a critical mass of installations, it will create a sense of discovery with a series of art landmarks as one wanders through the District NoHo neighborhood. The design will include flexible open space at the heart of the project with a performing arts pavilion intended to support small scale outdoor performances.

How will this development benefit the community from the standpoint of beautification, entertainment, economic benefits, etc.?

The current site condition is a very large asphalt and concrete parking field adjacent to the North Hollywood Station. The urban design of District NoHo will create a street grid which will invite pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles to enter and pass through the urban village and enjoy the three acres of open space and expansive tree lined sidewalks. The series of open spaces will provide shaded gathering places for the community, activated by retail, food and beverage, and community programming. One of the major transit goals is to enhance the Metro ridership experience by consolidating the bus lines to the new Transit Hub providing direct connections to the local and regional bus lines. The project will provide many economic benefits including infusing the NoHo Arts District neighborhood with a vibrant, creative workforce that will work, live, eat, drink and patronize the many unique restaurant, bars, comedy clubs, galleries, studios and theaters that make NoHo such a great place to live. The project will create thousands of new job opportunities in the construction, service, and office sectors as well as substantial property and business tax revenue to the City and County of Los Angeles.

Businesses are concerned that when construction begins it will hinder their business and need to be reassured that this won’t happen. They are concerned more now due to the losses they experienced during pandemic.

We hear and are sensitive to the concerns about potential impacts that might occur to local businesses. The $1B plus project investment will ensure a healthy and sustainable future for NoHo by creating a true mixed-use community for residents, workers and Metro transit riders who will populate the project and patronize NoHo businesses. We will design and implement a construction phasing plan that will be well-communicated to minimize access issues and other potential impacts to the NoHo business community.

The construction plan will be developed in close coordination with Metro to minimize disruption to the existing transit operations during Project construction. All existing services are proposed to be maintained throughout Project construction, although temporary detours or relocation of stops may be required during the various phases of construction.

Communication will be key, and the District NoHo team and Metro will actively communicate with the community as the plans unfold. We will comply with the Los Angeles Municipal Code construction guidelines for construction hours, ensure dust has minimal impact on adjacent properties, and publish approved construction truck and equipment haul routes as required.

Will this new development cause apartment rents to increase?

The State of California and Los Angeles are experiencing a significant housing shortage as demand far exceeds supply. District NoHo is an opportunity to add much needed homes to region via smart transit-oriented density at a major Metro transit hub as Metro continues to investment in improving the rail and bus system infrastructure. Approximately 1,500 new residential units will be provided with a mix of market and affordable housing offerings on transit, within proximity to local businesses, entertainment, jobs and educational opportunities.

How many of the units will be affordable housing/Section 8 for lower income people.

Affordable Housing is important to create a sustainable mixed-use community and is an integral part of District NoHo. The project will provide 20% of the housing options for residents who earn an average of 60% of AMI or less. The affordable housing will be under the guidance of the City of Los Angeles and its guidelines for implementation.

Seniors, veterans, families, and the arts community housing are all areas being considered for the Affordable Housing. The type of Affordable Housing will be, in part, determined by the available funding opportunities in the market at the time the Project receives its final approvals.

How can I find out more about the project?
