Apartment homes and shops may rise on old Hollywood trash dump

The fate of a contaminated swath of city-owned land that once housed an incinerator moved a step closer to being decided on Wednesday.

In the next five years, if things go as planned, an old trash dump could be turned into a new mixed-use development with 315 apartments and a nearby supermarket with trendy shops and restaurants.

The team that would develop the sprawling 30.5-acre parcel includes Louis Birdman, the same man who’s building the One Thousand Museum, a 62-story ultra-luxury tower overlooking Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami.

But first, Hollywood officials have to iron out the details and bring the plan back for commission approval, likely in a few months.
