IMT Capital is continuing to push ahead with plans to construct a multifamily residential development in Van Nuys, according to an environmental report published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Slated for a 1.22-acre site at 6500 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, the proposed six-story building would feature 160 apartments - including seven units of affordable housing - above a parking garage for 274 vehicles.

A rendering from the IMT Capital website portrays a contemporary mid-rise structure.

The environmental report points to an approximately 18-month construction timeline, although a groundbreaking date is not clear.

IMT is also behind the proposed redevelopment of the former Sunkist headquarers in Sherman Oaks.

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.
