This McMansion in Mar Vista is probably beyond the scale required by the new LA city ordinance designed to reduce overbuilding on lots.

This week, L.A.’s city council passed a new ordinance restricting overbuilding on lots in 20 neighborhoods throughout the city. Called the Neighborhood Conservation Interim Control Ordinance, the new set of rules  put a two-year ban on the size of new, single-family dwellings throughout L.A. City. The ordinance has supporters in various neighborhood groups, while of course builders and developers are opposed to the new building limitations.
