The Los Angeles City Planning Commission has approved plans for a multifamily residential development just north of the SR-118 Freeway in Mission Hills.

The proposed project would rise from a vacant lot at Bermuda Street and Langdon Avenue, just west of Sepulveda Boulevard.  Plans call for a four-story building featuring 52 one- and two-bedroom apartments - including seven very low- and extremely low-income units - with 77 parking spaces.

Architectural plans indicate that the low-rise structure would be clad with smooth-finish stucco and concrete.  The building would be painted gray, white, and orange.

Construction is anticipated to occur over approximately 21 months.  An environmental study previously released by the City of Los Angeles had anticipated a construction period beginning in Summer 2019 and ending in Spring 2021.

The unanimous vote to approve by the Planning Commission occurred despite the objection of the Mission Hills Neighborhood Council, which submitted a letter of opposition to the Bermuda Apartments.  The letter expressed concerns regarding potential impacts on public safety and traffic congestion, as well as perceived burdens on sewage, water, and power systems.

The Bermuda Apartments are being developed by the Ackerman Family Trust.
