Environmental Team Secures CEQA Victory for Westfield Group

Westfield plans to develop the Village at Westfield Topanga project, a mixed-use development proposed to include over one million square feet of retail, restaurant, grocery, hotel and office use. The Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization filed a lawsuit under CEQA challenging the approval of the project by the city of Los Angeles. The lawsuit primarily contends that the Village at Westfield Topanga is inconsistent with the goals and policies of the Warner Center Specific Plan, particularly those focused on pedestrian-oriented uses. Alston represented Westfield in the CEQA litigation in Los Angeles County Superior Court and successfully argued in briefing and at the hearing that the Village project is consistent with all city (and regional) land use plans and that the city complied with all requirements of CEQA when it approved the project.
