In July 2014, the Developer filed applications for a Development Review, a Planned Development, and a Development Agreement for a proposed project that would construct three 5-story structures, up to a maximum of 76 feet high, to be constructed in three phases (one structure in each phase). The total project would result in the construction of: a combined total of 261 apartments on the upper floors; a combined total of up to 21,265 square-feet (maximum) of retail/restaurant space on the ground floors; and a total of 673 parking spaces in ground-level and subterranean garages. Various amenities for the residents would include (in each building): a fitness center, a swimming pool, a meeting room, outdoor courtyards, and roof terraces. This project would include a zone change from Burbank Center Commercial Limited Business (BCC-2) to Planned Development (PD).
The project site is generally located on the westerly side of North 1st Street (between 1st Street and Interstate 5), and between East Magnolia Boulevard and the alley southeast of Palm Avenue. The project site is a total of approximately three acres of land. The following addresses are included in the project site: 227, 249, 315 & 333 North 1st Street; 36, 42 & 52 E. Palm Ave; and 36, 52 & 60 E. Magnolia Blvd.
