About the Golden State Specific Plan

The Golden State Specific Plan strives to fulfill the City's Burbank2035 General Plan by creating an actionable long-range planning document for the Golden State District. The Plan would identify goals, policies, guidelines, and develop an implementation plan for future development and improvements in the Goldens State District. The Plan presents an opportunity for the City to plan for the future in a manner that leverages resources to meet the City’s short and long term planning efforts, through a shared vision that builds on – and strengthens – the existing neighborhood through responsible development.

The Golden State District

The approximately 600-acre Golden State District (the “District”) is located south and east of the Hollywood Burbank Airport. It includes land zoned for industrial, commercial and residential uses. There are two existing Metrolink stations, a proposed High Speed Rail station, and the Hollywood Burbank Airport within the District. Home to Lockheed from the 1940’s to the 1990’s, it has been traditionally seen as one of the City’s industrial hubs and a major employment center. With Lockheed’s departure in the 1990s there was a slowdown in activity within the District. However, in more recent years, this area has experienced a resurgence and has evolved to have an eclectic mix of commercial, office, media, industrial and technology businesses. As of 2017, it was home to approximately 15,000 jobs and 3,500 residents.
