LOS ANGELES (AP) - The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, better known for its efforts to put condoms on porn actors, is suing Los Angeles to stop a high-rise development that would go next door to its Hollywood headquarters.

The suit, filed Thursday in Superior Court, also names the Pallidum Project’s developers.

It seeks to overturn the City Council’s approval last month of two 30-story towers containing more than 730 apartments, as well as shops, restaurants and parking.

The foundation, headquartered in a 24-story tower next door, has been an opponent of huge development in the area.

It says this project packs too much residential development into too small an area.

It also accuses the city of violating environmental quality standards and other regulations.

The project’s supporters say it would bring needed housing to the area.
