The San Fernando Valley is not exactly known for its exceptional public transit. But the future residents of a proposed five-story apartment building could do away with car ownership altogether. That’s because the site — currently a liquidation furniture store — is just a three-minute walk from the Van Nuys Metrolink station.
The line whisks riders to downtown Los Angeles in 35 minutes, a hassle-free commute that could be spent catching up on emails or reading the newspaper. Located at 7644-7658 Van Nuys Boulevard, the proposed development is also within walking distance of Smart & Final, The Home Depot, Regency Theatres, Starbucks, In-N-Out Burger, and much more.
If approved by the City of Los Angeles Planning Commission, the project would feature 124 apartments (including 14 affordable units), basement level parking and roof decks. The applicant, Shlomi Asiss, is a local developer with another mixed-use project underway in Sun Valley. Ken Stockton Architects Inc. was named as the representative; the firm has completed a number of multi-family projects in various architectural styles throughout Los Angeles.
