On August 11, 2000, the Los Angeles Times reported that the "Mohammedi Center Anjuman-e-Burhanee congregation is proposing to build a 7,500-square-foot, two-story structure on its Platt Avenue property, officials said...Men would worship on one floor of the mosque, and women on the other, said Alain Bally of Bally / Taylor Associates, a land-use consulting firm that is representing the Islamic congregation." At the present time, "men and women take turns worshiping in the mosque's existing 4,500-square-foot building." Despite the concerns of some neighbors surrounding increased noise and traffic, "membership is expected to remain about 490 after the new building is completed."
