A planned 24-acre complex in Warner Center could bring about 1,000 apartments and condos, a 24-story hotel, and a trio of 15-story office buildings to a site near De Soto and Burbank avenues.
Plans proposed by property owners Adler Realty and seen for the first time in new renderings would transform the Warner Center Corporate Park from a collection of relatively low-rise buildings into a Van Tilburg, Banvard, and Soderbergh-designed mixed-use neighborhood with 1.45 million square feet of new, taller buildings. That’s a big change for the neighborhood, and not everyone is excited about it, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.
At a neighborhood council meeting last week, residents objected to the lack of affordable housing and a food market in the project. One neighbor complained about the project not providing enough “space for about 800 dogs that potential residents would bring along.”
The project is part of the Warner Center 2035 Plan, a set of guidelines aimed at transforming the commercial area into a more livable hub of housing, offices, open space, and transit connections.
Adler Realty bought the property in 2013. Plans for the project were submitted to the city planning department in February 2017. Developer Michael Adler of Adler Realty told the Daily News that he expected to receive the city’s decision on the plans in roughly six months.
