EAGLE ROCK — Patrons of the Eagle Rock Sizzler will eventually have to find another place to order a platter of Steak, Shrimp & Malibu Chicken. A developer has purchased the Colorado Boulevard property and plans to build a four-story project with apartments above ground floor shops.
The project at 2530 Colorado Boulevard, which is still in the early planning stages, would consist of six to eight retail spaces on the ground floor and 36 apartments above, according to Shahab Ghods of Plus Architects, who provided details of the development at last month’s meeting of the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council’s Land Use & Planning Committee. The site was sold last December for $2.9 million, according to property records.
The project could take about three years to complete, and the developers would need city approval to exceed density limits and construct 36 apartments, according to meeting minutes. Parking would be located underground and behind the building.
The developer is looking at either a modern or more traditional, Spanish-inspired design for the project, which would rise a maximum of 55 feet. Committee members, however, preferred a contemporary style, according to meeting minutes. “Most LUPC members agreed that the original Modern design for the development fit into Eagle Rock better than an incongruous and outdated Spanish style.”
What about the Sizzler? The Boulevard Sentinel said it is scheduled to close by the end of the year.
