SILVER LAKE — It’s been a year since the approximately one-acre chunk of Silver Lake now occupied by Phil’s Transfer & Storage went up for sale at more than $10 million. Now, a developer wants to build 135 units of housing and 12,000-square-feet of ground floor commercial space on the site near Bellevue Avenue and Silver Lake Boulevard.
The project would be among the largest proposed in Silver Lake in recent years and comes as many residents have grown weary of new townhouse developments rising across the neighborhood.
The developer is scheduled to present plans to neighbors at a community meeting tonight, Feb. 23. While one resident who lives near the site said he was not notified of the public meeting, a representative of the developer said tonight’s presentation would be the first of several public meetings.
The meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Holy Virgin Mary Russian Orthodox Cathedral, 650 Micheltorena Street.
