A 277-unit apartment building has broken ground in the San Fernando Valley’s Warner Center neighborhood, McCormick Construction announced today. The project is expected to be complete in fall 2019.
The complex, called Evolution Warner Center, is being developed by Evolution Strategic Partners. The Urban Architecture Lab-designed building will hold 57 studio apartments, 139 one-bedroom apartments, 73 two-bedrooms, and 4 three-bedroom apartments, plus four live/work units.
Residents will have access to a pool and spa, a gym, a rooftop barbecue area, an outdoor kitchen, and designated pet washing and bike repair areas.
Located near Kittridge Street and Variel Avenue, the 426,000-square-foot development will be close to the 34-acre Promenade Mall (which has a major reboot in the works), the Warner Center Business Park, and the Warner Center Plaza. It will also be within walking distance of the Orange Line’s Canoga Station, which might eventually become a light rail line.
“This development is an exciting one for us as we have seen the continued growth and housing demand spike in this area,” Michael McCormick, CEO and president of McCormick Construction, said in a statement.
There is a lot going on in Warner Center. Shopping mall owner Westfield has plans for a 34-acre mixed use community on the old Promenade mall that would bring 1,400 new units of housing to the area. Just a block from that development, Adler Realty Investments is planning a nine-building complex with 1,000 residential units and 222 hotel rooms. And next month, construction’s expected to begin on a 274-unit apartment building.
