An environmental report published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers a first look at the Woodley & San Fernando Mission Project, a proposed mixed-use development in Granada Hills.

Harridge Development Group, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm, intends to raze a shopping center at 16201 W. San Fernando Mission Boulevard to replace it with a residential-retail complex.  According to an August case filing from the Department of City Planning, the project would consist of three- and four-story structures featuring 418 market rate apartments, 22 units of very low income housing and approximately 65,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space.

The Spanish Colonial style buildings are being designed by VTBS Architects, and would employ a color palette of white cream, tan and grey.  Amenities are planned throughout the site, including a pool courtyard, roof terraces, a community room and parking for 937 vehicles.

Harridge expects to construct the mixed-use project over the course of 26 months, beginning with demolition of the existing buildings in the second quarter of 2017, leading to a completion date in the second quarter of 2019.

These plans are contingent on several discretionary approvals by the City of Los Angeles, including density bonus incentives and a site plan review.

City Looks to Update Land Use and Transportation Along Rail-to-River Corridor

A freight railway that cuts through South L.A. is set for rebirth as an active transportion corridor.

In 2012, Metro began exploring the possibility of transforming a segment of a former freight rail right-of-way that cuts through the heart of South Los Angeles into an active transportation project.  The project, now known as the Rail-to-River corridor, would convert the Harbor Subdivision - which runs east-to-west along Florence and Slauson Avenues - for use by pedestrians and cyclists.

To capitalize on this investment, the Cit
