Back out to the San Fernando Valley we go. A short walk up the street from the North Hollywood terminus of the Red and Orange Lines, plans are in the works for a mixed-use development at 11424 Burbank Boulevard. Here are the details from the project's environmental report:
11424 W Burbank Blvd
Construction of a 124 unit multi-family apartment and 750 sq. ft. of ground floor retail space, 56-ft. in height, on a 36,847 sq. ft. lot. The proposed project will have 98,866 sq. ft. of floor area entailing 4 levels of residential over one at grade level (parking garage, commercial space and three residential units), and one subterranean parking garage. There will be a total of 138 auto parking spaces and 136 bike parking spaces provided.
While some developers in transit rich Downtown Los Angeles want to built more parking than required, 11424 Burbank clocks in with an approximately 1:1 ratio between parking spaces and residential units. That's on the low end for multi-family buildings in Los Angeles, and even more impressive when you consider that the project is located north of the Santa Monica Mountains. Perhaps we're finally moving towards a less auto-dependent version of the San Fernando Valley.
