When Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) sold the 34-acre site of the defunct Warner Center Promenade Mall to the L.A. RAMS for $150 million, Topangans heaved a sigh of relief that no 15,000-seat arena was to be built in an already highly trafficked area. Now the Rams` are talking about a new practice facility, surrounded by a mixed-use complex like SoFi Stadium.
Instead of raging against the cororate machine, Topangans are in talks with the Rams to create a Commuter Zip Line from the site to the beach, possibly with a tributary to the Malibu Pier. The Zip Line will supplement the expected traffic jam at the new Starbucks. It would be the longed-for toll road Topangans have been hankering for since the last time the roads washed out in the â€™80s.
