LOS ANGELES (AP) — A draft of a new state earthquake map shows a fault running through the heart of Hollywood and under the proposed site of a development that includes two skyscrapers.

The California Geological Survey on Wednesday issued a preliminary map showing that a segment of the 10-mile Hollywood Fault system runs through the site of Millennium Hollywood — a million-square-foot development — and right under the nearby Capitol Records building.

State law forbids building some structures atop an active fault but survey head John Parrish says more study is needed to determine the fault's exact proximity to the skyscrapers.

Developer Millennium Hollywood says it's long been suspected that the fault ran through the site but tests showed no evidence of an active fault there. However, the developer plans further study.
