Pasadena officials signed off on Trammell Crow Co.’s plans to build a large-scale complex in East Pasadena, allowing the developers to finally advance on the project after being in the pipeline for 12 years.

The Dallas-based firm will replace a self-storage facility with 550 apartments and 9,800 square feet of commercial space. There will also be parking for 839 vehicles and 84 bicycle stalls, Pasadena Now reported.

The Pasadena City Council was largely split on the project since there have been some concerns about the safety of building on the land. Opponents of the project claim its proximity to the 210 Freeway could pollute the air for residents.

The site, dubbed “Space Bank,” is also the former home of a U.S. Navy missile testing operation that has generated hazardous materials in the soil and potentially groundwater.

Located at 3200 E. Foothill Boulevard, the residential units — a mix of studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments — would be spread among eight mid-rise buildings. Out of the 550 apartments, 69 will be set aside as affordable.

Steinberg Hart is designing the structures. RELM Studio has been tapped to design the open spaces, which will include a dog park and two courtyards.

Construction is expected to begin in May 2019 and complete in April 2022. [PN] — Natalie Hoberman
