Carmel Partners has agreed to incorporate affordable housing units into a proposal for a residential redevelopment of the Glendale Unified School District headquarters.

The affordable units could sway Glendale officials, who rejected Carmel’s first residential proposal for the 223 N. Jackson Street site six months ago because of its lack of affordable housing, according to Urbanize.

Under the redevelopment project, Carmel would build a four-story building with 192 units and redevelop two existing buildings on Jackson Street to create 15 more apartments. The breakdown of affordable units isn’t clear. Carmel is seeking density bonuses in exchange for including them.

If the plan is approved, Glendale Unified would vacate its headquarters and hand over the keys to the property to Carmel. In exchange, the San Francisco-based firm would give the school district a building it plans to purchase on E. Colorado Street for the new school headquarters.

Carmel is busy with other projects around Los Angeles. In Mid-City, it’s planning a huge 1,210-unit mixed-use complex called Cumulus. It also has a 600-unit project in the works in the Arts District, and a 700-unit project nearby in Downtown. [Urbanize] – Dennis Lynch
