      LA council approves Hollywood towers project

      LOS ANGELES (AP) A controversial project that would change the Hollywood skyline by constructing two high-rises has been approved by the Los Angeles City Council.

      The so-called Millennium Hollywood project envisions two towers of 30-plus stories adjacent to the landmark Capitol Records building.

      City News Service reports that the council gave unanimous 13-0 approval Wednesday.

      Some Hollywood groups have campaigned against the project on grounds that it would be a monstrosity and worsen traffic congestion.

      Opponents have also charged that the site is on an active earthquake fault.

      The project includes residential units, hotel rooms, restaurants and other retail space.
