The city Redevelopment Agency has delayed voting on a plan to allow large parapet signs on buildings in the 34-acre Corporate Pointe office complex near Fox Hills.
Several residents of the nearby Culver Crest neighborhood complained Monday that the corporate signs would be in poor taste and create an eyesore. But a representative from the Fox Hills Property Owners Assn. said his group supports the signs, calling them necessary for the success of the project.
Many potential corporate clients would lose interest in leasing space in the nine-building, 1.5-million-square-foot project at Slauson Avenue and Bristol Parkway if they are not allowed to place their names on the buildings, said the complex's developer, Robert B. Farrell of Bramalea California Inc.
The agency approved a master plan for the project's smaller signs but asked its staff to come up with new recommendations on the orientation, size, number and uniformity of the larger, roof-level signs. The new recommendations are expected to be considered at the agency's Sept. 18 meeting.
