The new look of Eagle Rock Boulevard [updated]

Eagle Rock  — Construction is expected to start this year on a 38-unit small-lot home project that will replace the Philippine Village commercial center, according to the design architect of the development. It’s part of a surge of new homes and mixed use projects that have popped up or are in the works along Eagle Rock Boulevard.

Rachel Allen Architecture provided renderings and details of the project in the 4500 block of Eagle Rock Boulevard. Renderings and site plans show ground-level storefronts with residences above facing the boulevard. Landscaped walkways and alleys will separate the rows of 3-story homes in the development.

The new development is about two blocks north from where The ERB, a 45-unit townhome development with ground floor-commercial space, has been selling homes.

Meanwhile, further south on the boulevard in Glassell Park, Perch Apartments  located on the same block where a new Target has opened, is under construction.

Across the street,  Teague Terrace, a 55-unit affordable apartment building, has been completed. The same developer behind Teague Terrace recently completed another affordable apartment complex, a 46-unit complex, a block south on Eagle Rock Boulevard.

In addition to new buildings, a campaign has been launched to make a stretch of the boulevard in Eagle Rock more walkable and pedestrian-friendly as part of an effort to attract more businesses and investment.

Update: A previous version of the story included the estimated cost and square-footage of the development to replace Philippine Village. That information, however, is no longer valid and is being updated. We will provide the latest figures when available.

  1. Good to see the focus on affordable. They should give preference to the gente of limited means so they can stay in the hood.

  2. Will they finally put the horrendously ugly utility poles & cables underground? Alll the rest is lipstick on a pig until that’s done.

  3. Not in my backyard! This will ruin my views of high voltage wires on Eagle Rock Blvd! I don’t trust it. Just look at those shadowy figures in the rendering!

  5. Will be nice to see ERB get more and more businesses and people living on the street… onward Eagle Rock!

  6. I hope all of those new developments include plenty of parking spaces!
