Universal To Build Huge “Campus”
NBC Universal has announced plans to build a $3-billion office and residential center on the 391-acre Universal studio property near Hollywood. Along with additional production facilities, the project, if approved, would include restaurants, stores, a hotel, and 2,900 homes and apartment units. The Universal Studios Tour and the Universal CityWalk center would also be improved. Local community associations and homeowner groups have expressed alarm over the possible impact of such a large undertaking on the surrounding community.
