Completion is anticipated this summer for a scaled back multifamily residential development in Glendale.
The project, located at the former site of a Bob’s Big Boy restaurant at 1407 Glenoaks Boulevard, consists of a three-story edifice featuring 55 one- and two-bedroom apartments above subterranean parking for 78 vehicles. Plans approved in 2016 by the City of Glendale indicate that five of the apartments will be set aside as affordable housing at the very low-income level.
A rendering of the project, provided by Arpa Design Build, depicts a contemporary low-rise structure with an L-shaped footprint. The mass of the building is set back from Glenoaks Boulevard behind a large garden.
Los Angeles County Assessor's records list the owner of the development site as AK Vesper, LLC, a Glendale-based entity managed by Artur Karakenyan.
The under-construction project is downsized from an earlier plan for the site, which was unanimously rejected by the Glendale City Council in 2015. Earlier plans for a mixed-use building containing 74 condos were deemed too large for the property, resulting in a shorter building without ground-floor commercial uses.
