It has been more than half a year since Measure JJJ, an initiative that requires developers use union labor and allocate a portion of the property to affordable housing for any projects that are require a zoning change, passed last November, and it is already having an impact on development in Los Angeles. Laurie Lustig-Bower, a executive VP at CBRE and a development sales expert, says that Measure JJJ is a major concern for developers looking at potential land sites, and none want to take the risk of needing an exemption to the general plan because the cost increases rise significantly.
