A new high-rise may be on the way to Glendale, bringing 240 new units of housing to the city.
Developer Adelphia Properties filed plans with the city last month that call for a 20-story tower with 14 floors of housing above six levels of parking (plus 3.5 more floors of parking below ground). It’s not clear yet whether the project would hold apartments or condos
Planned for 610 North Brand Boulevard, the tower would be located steps from the 134 freeway (and perhaps the planned park that would cap it) and surrounded by banks on all sides. It would replace a parking garage, and, if completed, would be among the tallest buildings in Glendale.
A total of 12 units would be designated affordable, according to plans. It would also offer landscaped open space and amenities for residents.
As Urbanize LA points out, the high-rise is unusually ambitious for a residential project in Glendale, where most new housing comes in the form of shorter wood-framed structures. It’s also a bit north of the city’s newly designated Downtown Art & Entertainment District, around which much of the new development has been concentrated.
