GLASSELL PARK  —   The first homes in the NELA Union development are scheduled to go on sale next week, with prices expected to range from $475,0000 to the low $600,000 range. The 52-home development  is one of the largest, single residential developments to have been built in Glassell Park in recent years.

The three-level homes with two-car garages are being built on the site of a  failed, 100-unit condo project, which stopped in mid construction.  Warmington Residential, which purchased the site for $7.8 million,  cleared away the lot, and instead of condos,  has built a smaller, 52-unit townhouse development.

While the site, wedged between Eagle Rock Boulevard and the 2 Freeway, might be too urban for some, Warmington is counting on new construction, modern design and competitive prices to attract buyers.  The homes will range in size from approximately 1,200 square-foot units with two bedrooms and 2-1/2 baths to nearly 2,000 square-foot units with fourbedrooms and 3-1/2 baths.  The development will include a community garden and a “pet-friendly” environment.”

A grand opening for the first batch of homes is scheduled for May 10 & May  11 from 10 AM to 5PM.

Glassell Park has emerged as a hot spot of new construction, with NELA-Union as ranking as the largest single new project now under way.

  2. Nice looking condos. I don’t know, for 400K for a cardboard condo and have the 2 freeway as your back yard you are better off buying a single home and do without the traffic noise, association fees and most of all a cheaply built condo where you can hear your next door neighbor sneeze, fart and flush the toilet.

  3. Although true, “wedged between Eagle Rock Boulevard and the 2 Freeway” doesn’t wholly convey how bad the location is. They are on a tiny, narrow strip of land that’s little more than a median between ER Blvd. and the 2 Freeway. I can’t imagine they are insulated well enough from the noise one will experience. It’s a bizarre site to build residential anything.

  4. It’s funny how townhomes wedged between a major freeway, and a 6 lane commuter highway (Eagle Rock Blvd.) are somehow considered “urban” in Los Angeles. This looks a lot more “suburban industrial zone” to me.

    Decent architecture though… hope the buyers have strong lungs!

    • That’s what I think every time I drive by them – the pollution will be horrible. You’ll never be able to open the windows, and the exteriors will be dingy with soot in no time. It really is a tiny strip of land, the townhouses’ front doors literally open up right onto the Eagle Rock Blvd. sidewalk. Cars will whizz by six feet from your front door, and right behind you is the onramp to the 2 North and the 2 North itself.

      I don’t get it.

    • I assume the publicity writer is using “urban” as a euphemism for “noisy and dirty”, ignoring the fact that this isn’t an urban context at all!

    It’s interesting to think that we fought off a crappy McDonald’s restaurant and some LUBE and WASH joint, people were pissed. Storied were spread around about a young lady being “Raped and left for dead” on the property, like that was some reason to roll over and accept a McDonalds…..smart heads prevailed and now we at least have some new housing.

    I do have to laugh at how they have “Photoshopped” out the DWP power poles and transmission lines, on and right outside those front doors is a horizontal wooden fence…..
