Film school may erect building at Hollywood farmers market site
City officials trying to arrange an agreement between the Hollywood farmers market and the Los Angeles Film School were surprised to learn this week that the school is considering building a major development at the market site.
The plans for a large classroom building at Ivar and Selma avenues was revealed two weeks ago at a Hollywood Chamber of Commerce meeting.
"That was the first we heard about it. We were shocked," said Yussef Robb, who works for Los Angeles Councilman Eric Garcetti, who is trying to negotiate a dispute over the film school's parking garage.
