Van Nuys will see the start of construction for a new mixed-use complex in the first quarter of 2018, according to a statement from developer Blue Arch Investments.

The project, located at 7111 N. Sepulveda Boulevard, would replace a shuttered grocery store with a six-story building featuring 180 apartments above 4,750 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  Plans call for a mixture of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units, including 20 that are priced for very low income households.

Architect Daryoush Safai is designing the mid-rise development which would feature an exterior of white, orange and black.

In addition to the project at 7111 Sepulveda, Blue Arch is also in the midst of construction on a smaller apartment complex on Hartford Avenue on the western perimeter of 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.
