A three-story Target that's being planned for the corner of Sunset and Western is hitting some road blocks, according to Curbed LA. Not only is the proposed structure 45 feet taller than the maximum permitted, but Target is also challenging a local rule that any large retailer must provide free delivery service to encourage walking, bussing and biking. Says Curbed commenter Miss Teresa, who brought the news: "Wouldn't free delivery from Target be a great thing? What an urban concept! If I could get free delivery from Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, or the Farmers Market, I might never drive again." [Curbed]
