Construction is scheduled to start next month on a new apartment complex that will replace two low-slung Warner Center commercial buildings with 274 new apartments and 11 live/work units, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.
Developer BCEG International Investment-US, Inc. plans to begin demolition next month on the property. Construction’s expected in February, with the seven-story project due to wrap up in December 2019.
The city has also approved a new 12-story building on the site, but the developer hasn’t announced a timeline for that.
The project is one of a few in the Warner Center area that are taking advantage of new planning guidelines in the area that allow for more dense building and no limits to building heights.
One of those projects is about two blocks away from the BCEG site: A blockbuster redevelopment of the Westfield Promenade mall that will bring 1,400 housing units and two hotels to the 34-acre site. New projects are sprouting all across the San Fernando Valley.
