A four-acre south located immediately south of the Gold Line's Monrovia Station could yield a multifamily residential complex, according to an announcement from the Monrovia City Manager.

Richman Group, a Connecticut-based real estate developer, has announced plans for Station Square South, a 296-unit apartment complex at the northeast corner of Magnolia Avenue and Duarte Road.  A handful of small commercial buildings would give way for the collection of five-story structures.

Architects Orange is designing the project, which would incorporate numerous courtyards, along with other on-site amenities such as a swimming pool, a dog park, and a looped walking path.

Richman Group, which bills itself as America's 7th largest rental apartment owner, is also building a 127-unit development with ground-floor retail space near Metro's North Hollywood Station.
