Residents near the Town and Country shopping center at Third and Fairfax may have noticed a very large wall being constructed behind the stores. The approximately twelve-foot tall wall being constructed will run along the property line behind the complex for approximately 600 feet, providing a permanent sound barrier between the site and Hancock Park Elementary School.  The redevelopment project is still pending with a draft EIR expected out later this year.

“As part of our commitment to being a good neighbor, and as a direct result of conversations we have had with local residents and stakeholders this past year, we are proactively building a new masonry wall along the property line we share with Hancock Park Elementary School,” said John Nahas, Vice President of Regency Centers in a statement to the Buzz. “This new wall will help limit sound from the Town & Country Center’s loading alley, providing the school with an improved learning environment, and building on our ongoing efforts to work collaboratively with Hancock Park Elementary and the surrounding community.”

Originally, construction was scheduled for this summer so the wall would be ready for the school year and not interrupt classes, but schools will be now conducting classes online due to the pandemic.
