Big Infill Development Planned Near North Hollywood Station
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.
The development site sits immediately east of the NoHo Commons, a large residential, retail and office development which was spearheaded by the defunct Community Redevelopment Agency. The project, while controversial at the time, appears to have achieved its goal of spurring additional development throughout the North Hollywood community.
In addition to the proposed mixed-use complex at 11120 Chandler Bouelvard, a four-story hotel is planned three blocks east at the intersection of Tujunga Avenue and Weddington Street. Several smaller multi-family residential developments are planned on block located north of Chandler Boulevard.
