Next week, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission will review EMC Capital Group's proposal to construct a mixed-use development in Reseda.

The project, slated for a 1.5-acre property at 6916 N. Reseda Boulevard, would consist of a five-story building featuring 165 apartments - including 16 very low-income units and two units of workforce housing - above 14,000 square feet of street-fronting commercial space.
