A new mixed-use development featuring residential, office and restaurant space is slated for the science fiction-themed Fry’s Electronics location at 2311 N. Hollywood Way in Burbank.

In February, Fry’s announced it was going out of business and would shutter its remaining 31 stores. Prior to the permanent closure, another large-scale development was pitched for the Warner Center location, potentially bringing 880 residential units, 2,100 square feet of ground-floor retail and a hotel with 204 guest rooms to 6100 N. Canoga Avenue.

The latest proposal has been dubbed Aero Crossings due to its proximity to Hollywood Burbank Airport. The project calls for four buildings across a 10.43-acre site, currently occupied by Fry’s Electronics and a surface parking lot. The five-story office building would span 151, 800 square feet and sit adjacent to a five-story parking garage. More than 1,600 vehicle parking spaces are planned for the entire development.

Two seven-story buildings would house 8,200 square feet of restaurant space and 862 residential units, including 12 live/work units and 80 affordable units for very low income residents. Another freestanding one-story building would feature 1,500 square feet of restaurant space.

LaTerra Development is behind the ambitious proposal, which would introduce a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, plus three-level townhomes fronting Vanowen Street. Select live/work units boast private roof decks and are also accessible from Vanowen Street.

There would be 130,000 square feet of open space in the form of paseos, courtyards, residential roof decks and private outdoor spaces. Indoor amenities are also planned, although specific details have not yet been disclosed.

Designed by Urban Architecture Lab, the contemporary-style, mid-rise development appears to be clad in stucco, brick and wood-look siding with large windows and metal or glass balcony guardrails. Expansive storefront windows and lush landscaping animate the pedestrian realm.

Future residents with live steps away from the Bob Hope Airport South Metrolink station, providing a direct route to Downtown Los Angeles. Nearby conveniences include the Center Shops, dotted with big-box stores like WalMart, Target and Lowe’s, plus specialty retailers like West Elm, Nordstrom Rack and Ulta Beauty.

The renderings were unveiled in a recently published environmental study. If Aero Crossings is ultimately approved by the City of Burbank, construction could begin by July 2022 and reach completion by December 2025.
