EAGLE ROCK — It’s time to find another place for Steak & Malibu Chicken. Customers who went to the Sizzler restaurant at 2530 Colorado Boulevard last week found the place locked up and a notice saying “our lease has come to an end.”
The Sizzler’s days were numbered when a developer bought the property nearly three years ago. A filing with the Planning Department describes a four-story, mixed-use project with six to eight ground-floor retail spaces, 36 apartments and 86 parking spaces.
The property owners, Colorado Equities LLC, want to build a project that is more dense and taller than normally allowed in return for including three apartment for very low income tenants.
Those plans could change again in the wake of the passage of Proposition JJJ, the affordable housing bond, said Greg Merideth, President The Eagle Rock Association, known as TERA.
“Although the developers have presented twice to the TERA board, TERA has not taken a position on the project,” Merideth said in an email. “The reason for not taking a position has been that the plans have been continually updating. Also, Proposition JJJ passed just before the developer’s last presentation. This likely impacted their plans. We expect that they will present again to TERA once the plans are finalized.”
And for those who are missing their platter of shrimp, steak and Malibu chicken, the Sizzler at 2920 Los Feliz Blvd. in Atwater Village remains open.
