SILVER LAKE — Developer Frost/Chaddock on Thursday will host a community meeting to update residents on its plans to build a trio of apartment buildings with more than 300 units of housing along Sunset Boulevard.
An announcement for the Thursday night meeting invites residents to review the “latest design improvements and other changes to the project.” What would those changes be? A representative for the company declined to provide any details in advance, saying that information would only be made available during the meeting.
The firm’s proposal for the Sunset Junction section of Silver Lake has been in the works for several years and has stirred up considerable opposition from residents and the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, which voted against the project as envisioned in 2012.
The new buildings would rise within three blocks of each other on or near Sunset Boulevard between Santa Monica Boulevard and Bates Avenue. Two of the properties would rise across the street from each other on the site of the 4100 Bar and the site of Santa Monica Boulevard storefronts that were demolished in 2011. In addition, the vacant Sunset Pacific Motel on Sunset Boulevard and Bates Avenue would also be demolished to make way for a third, new apartment building.
The buildings would contain some apartments reserved for tenants with low or moderate incomes as well as commercial space.
The community meeting on Thursday, June 12 will start at 6 p.m. at the Holy Virgin Mary Cathedral, 650 Micheltorena Street.
