A large residential complex is in the works in Van Nuys.

Filed by private property owner and car racing businessman Gary Rodrigues, the recent city planning proposal calls for a 384-unit residential complex on the block bound by Aetna Street, Oxnard Street and Van Nuys Boulevard.

Located less than a block from the Orange Line Busway, the proposed structure would have five stories, underground parking and 17,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

The site includes 16 different addresses on at least two parcels of land — at 6001 and 6059 Van Nuys Boulevard — that Rodrigues purchased in 2010 for over $11.2 million. These two lots measure 117,543 square feet and 56,575 square feet, respectively.

The landowner is requesting a zoning change, according to the city planning case report. Rodrigues, who owns the land beneath auto body shop Valley Motor Center, did not respond to immediate requests for comment.
