SILVER LAKE — A developer is proposing to replace a small shopping center in the 2400 block of Glendale Boulevard with a 50-unit residential complex. It’s one of several new housing projects that are in the works on an approximately half-mile stretch of Glendale that has also attracted new restaurants, shops and a 365 by Whole Foods market in recent years.
A committee of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council is scheduled to meet on Wednesday, Feb. 8 to review the proposed residential project at 2468 Glendale Boulevard, now occupied by Silver Glen Liquor and a few other storefronts that have become vacant over the past year. The developer, UB 2468 GLENDALE, LLC, is seeking city permission to build a project that is more dense and taller than would normally be allowed, according to a Planning Department summary. In return, about 11% of the units would be reserved for tenants with very low incomes.
The 50-unit project would be among the largest, single housing developments to be built in this part of Silver Lake in recent years. But there’s more housing headed for this section of Glendale Boulevard.
Down the street, sales are expected to begin this spring at the 10-home Ridge Silver Lake development on Glendale near Loma Vista Place. A short walk away on Glendale near Deane Street, a small apartment building was demolished to make way for five homes under the city’s small-lot ordinance.
In addition, the sale of the Citibank property at Glendale and Silver Lake boulevards has also raised speculation about development on that site. The bank and its large parking lot sit right next door to the 50-unit project that will be reviewed on Wednesday night.
