Casden Development Pico and Sepulveda

http://casdenwestla.com/photos/   Surf around on Casden West LA's site and see what 631 units will look like along with an overhead EXPO Station. The whole character of our town will change from suburban to urban. These "transit oriented developments ( TOD ) are our future if we don't fight them.
