An agenda item from the October meeting of the CRA/LA board has unveiled renderings for a new apartment complex in North Hollywood. Developer Hartsook Grand, LLC has requested approval for a density bonus to construct a five-story structure on three parcels at 11106-11118 W. Hartsook Street, just east of Lankershim Boulevard. The proposed development would contain a total of 61 apartments, including seven very low income units, one unit with mobility accessibility features and one with hearing/vision accessibility features.
In North Hollywood, construction is nearing completion for a mixed-use development just west of Lankershim Boulevard. The project, located at 11424 W. Burbank Boulevard, consists of a five-story structure offering 124 apartments, 750 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking accommodations for 138 vehicles and 136 bicycles. According to architectural drawings by Alan Boivin indicate that the building will feature a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a business center and a swimming pool.
A mixed-use development is now rising near the North Hollywood terminus of Metro’s Red and Orange Lines. Located at the northwest corner of Chandler Boulevard and Tujunga Avenue, the Micropolitan Chandler will consist of a seven-story structure featuring 82 apartments and approximatley 1,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The building, designed by Killefer Flammang Architects, will also offer a podium-level swimming pool and a rooftop amenity deck. The mixed-use complex is being developed by Micropolitan, a subsidiary of the engineering firm PSOMAS.
Local investment firm Ikon Hospitality, which specializes in hotel properties, is in the midst of construction on a new boutique inn near North Hollywood Station. The four-story development, designed by Irvine-based architecture firm nKlosures, will feature 43 guest rooms and gallery space for local artists. Guest rooms will come will be supplemented by a number of amenities, including private patios and a restort style pool. The low-rise building, located at the southeast corner of Tujunga Avenue and Weddington Street, is on pace for completion in 2017.
A new promotional video offers a flythrough tour of NoHo West, the proposed redevelopment of the San Fernando Valley’s soon-to-be vacant Laurel Plaza shopping center. The future mixed-use complex, located at 6150 Laurel Canyon Boulevard, is expected to create a walkable neighborhood featuring offices, apartments and ground-level shops and restaurants. A total of 742 residential units would be provided in three-to-six-story buildings along the perimeter of the 25-acre site. An existing four-story structure near the center of the property, currently a Macy’s department store, would be repurposed as approximately 500,000 square feet of office space.
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.
Two teams competing to develop properties surrounding North Hollywood Station have now combined their efforts. According to an announcement from the Source, Metro staff have recommended that the transportation agency enter into negotiations with a joint venture lead by the Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and Greenland USA, who would build a unified mixed-use development across approximately 15.6 acres of land. The project team also includes the Cesar Chavez Foundation, as well as the architecture and design firms Gensler, HKS Architects, Killefer Flammang Architects and Melendrez, Inc.
North Hollywood, home to the dual terminus of Metro’s Red and Orange Lines, is gradually embracing its role as one of the San Fernando Valley’s few urban hubs. Plans are already in the works for a high-rise commercial development atop the station’s sprawling park-and-ride lot. Now, according to environmental documents published by LADCP, smaller infill projects are starting to take form on nearby properties. Ikon Hospitality, a local investor specializing in Southern California hotel properties, is one of several developers active in the neighborhood.
Even as Metro’s bold plan for a high-rise complex atop North Hollywood Station remains dormant, other nearby property owners are picking up the development slack. Earlier this month, the Redondo Beach-based Urbanest Group filed plans with the city to construct a new residential-retail complex at 11120 West Chandler Boulevard. The proposed development would rise from a currently vacant one-acre lot, creating two five-story buildings with a cumulative 329 dwelling units and 4,500 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space.
Located at the intersection of Metro’s Red and Orange Lines, North Hollywood has helped lead the city’s push to build walkable urban communities around major transit hubs in the San Fernando Valley. That effort will see yet another boost, as a vacant lot near North Hollywood Station gives way for a mixed-use development. Late last week, plans were submitted to the City of Los Angeles for a low-rise residential-retail complex at 11405 West Chandler Boulevard.
