ECHO PARK — New homes and restaurants are planned for a trio of empty lots on Alvarado Street and Glendale Boulevard. These projects have been in the works for a while but it looks like their backers are renewing efforts to get them built. Here’s the rundown:
- A public hearing is set for Sept. 7 on a proposed one-story building with up to six separate restaurant spaces on the parking lot at the northwest corner of Alvarado and Scott Avenue (next to an Auto Zone). It’s not clear if the developer is going after indie restaurants or big chains (Quiznos, Coldstone Creamery, Panda Express, etc).
- A developer has asked the city for permission to carve up vacant properties at 1826 Glendale near Clifford Street to accommodate 18 townhomes under the city’s small-lot ordinance, which has been responsible for most of the new development in Echo Park. Permits for this project, which has been in the works for several years, show that the homes would be three stories high and include two-car garages and roof decks.
- At least three concepts for a small retail and restaurant center have been presented in recent years to fill the triangular lot at Glendale and Montana Street across from a KFC. Now a fourth idea has surfaced: a 4,500-square-foot building with subterranean parking and a rooftop deck is being shopped around on LoopNet. The concept is similar to the third proposal but features a different architectural style. Will the fourth time be the the charm?
