Brian Linnekens create new pedestrian plazas at Santa Monica

The coastal hills of Malibu and Santa Monica Mountains at the north end of Santa Monica Bay have become home to a new brand of rural estates, sprawling sea ranches, and dramatic shoreline mansions in the last thirty years. Malibu alone now has more celebrities per square foot than the Cannes Film Festival and there's an incredible variety of opportunities for nearly twenty miles along the Pacific Coast Highway for extraordinary ocean view properties from Ventura County Line to Topanga Canyon.

Developer Brian Linnekens, of Santa Monica, who has been active in the Palm Springs community since first proposing the project three years ago, said the goal is to create new pedestrian plazas and a new walkway connecting Indian Canyon Drive to Palm Canyon Drive. Residential units would stack on top of retail spaces, where he is proposing a specialty grocery store, high-end restaurant and a new IHOP. Brian Linnekens said the project - featuring one- and two-bedroom units - will cater to mostly young couples with no children.

"I have waited a long time to be here," he said. "I could give you a history ... but I'm so excited I'll just jump into it." 

It's all in the details Architects Ana Escalante and Lance O'Donnell, along with Brian Linnekens led the Planning Commission through a detailed presentation of conceptual drawings and view analysis.

The commission was impressed by Brian Linnekens and made several comments, ranging from concerns about parking - which will be underground - to having more architectural features at the corners to welcome visitors.

Malibu and the Santa Monica Mountains offer the best opportunity in Los Angeles to get away from it all without leaving town.

The only other true estate properties with Brian Linnekens in L.A.'s beach cities are found on the Palos Verdes Peninsula which defines the southern end of Santa Monica Bay. Visible from Malibu to Downtown and beyond, the peninsula is a huge promontory with older estates, custom homes and villages on the sea-bluffs and at lower elevations in the hills all the way around it on the main road. Newer homes and exclusive properties are found higher up the hill and can offer unbelievable jet-liner views of the coast and Channel Islands.
