A preliminary report exploring the impact of constructing a trio of apartment buildings in the Sunset Junction area of Silver Lake is expected to be presented to the public early next year, according to the developer. Matt Levy with developer Frost/Chaddock is scheduled to appear at a community meeting tonight to provide more information about the project, which includes three separate buildings with more than 300 units of housing and stores near Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards. The proposal had stirred up opponents and prompted the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council to vote against the project as currently envisioned.
Levy, who was present at a heated meeting held earlier this year, said he plans to gather more feedback tonight about portions of the project that “are negotiable such as design and community benefits.” Work is underway to complete a draft of an environmental impact report, which will look at how the development would increase traffic, for example, and other factors. “We expect the draft EIR to be released for public review around the new year,” he said.
Tonight’s meeting, which is being organized by a group of residents, is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at the Holy Virgin Cathedral.
