Restoration Hardware Rooftop Public Park in West Hollywood

Cities are exchanging entitlements for public benefits.  The City of West Hollywood got Restoration Hardware to offer free valet parking and provide a public park on it rooftop at its flagship West Hollywood store at 8564 Melrose Avenue directly across the Urth Cafe.  It is open daily to the public and has party space, a outdoor pool table, and ping pong.  The park looks more like the rooftop of a W hotel or the Standard Club.  Bring your lunch.  This is an example of the public benefits cities are extracting from property owners and developers for zoning rights, in this case a conversion of an office to a retail store.
