May 7, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
The Beverly Hills City Council has postponed a vote to put a new hotel and condominiums on the site of the old Beverly Hills Hilton.The City Council now plans to give its approval during a meeting Monday morning.

Developers want to build a Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and Condominiums. The new hotel would be 12 stories high. The condos would be six to eight stories.

If council members sign off on the plan, it's estimated the property could generate nearly $730 million in revenue for the city over the next 30 years.

Opponents complain new buildings will cause even more traffic problems in the area.

A Beverly Hills Homeowners Association plans to gather signatures to put a referendum on the November ballot to block the building.
