An industrial property in Glassell Park could be repurposed as a multifamily residential development.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a 370-unit apartment complex at 2910 W. San Fernando Road.  The project, slated for a 4.8-acre site adjacent to the Glendale Freeway, would set aside 31 residential units for very low income households.

The development site sits across an active railroad right of way from a similar mixed-use development designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios.

The property could also abut a future commuter rail, as Metro looks to expand service between Burbank and Downtown Los Angeles.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
