Malibu Real Estate, Controversial Mansions Looming

Judy Kunisaki, Malibu real estate

A Malibu real estate update shows that controversial mansions that have been in the planning stage for some time are looming closer to approval. The mansions are a proposal by Famous U2 rocker “The Edge”. The PUD involves a number of mansions lining a cliff face that overlooks Malibu, something that has caused quite a stir in the Malibu community over the past few years.

The project designers have made a number of concessions, reducing the original size of the mansions and being more sensitive to environmental concerns. While it appears that there is still a way to go before final approval the California Coastal Commission is recommending the projects approval by the commissioners. Suffice it to say that the Malibu real estate project is making progress.

Contact me, Judy Kunisaki, today to learn more about current market conditions and new projects planned for the Malibu area. My knowledge and experience will work to your advantage for all of your Malibu real estate needs.
