A sprawling eldercare facility is being planned on a Northrup Grumman site in Woodland Hills.

A filing with the city calls for a 1.27-million-square-foot development with 566 independent living units on a 17.6-acre portion of the defense contractor’s property. The overall site spans nearly 59 acres at 21240 W. Burbank Boulevard. The filing also calls for restaurant and retail, along with 129 guest rooms that could be a hotel.

Northrop Grumman will keep its Mission Systems division facility open on the remaining 41 acres. The site includes a number of large parking lots, which is likely where the complex will be built.

The Mission Systems division engineers and manufactures military radar and other sensor products.

Northrop Grumman could not be reached for comment. It is unclear if the company itself is leading the development project or is partnering with an outside firm. Its real estate director, A.J. Paz, signed off on paperwork filed with the city describing their intent to build the complex.

The site is located at the southern end of the Warner Center 2035 Plan area and is ripe for residential development. The city adopted the rezoning plan in 2013 to encourage residential and commercial development and turn Warner Center into a walkable “regional center where people can live, work, and play.”

Developers have descended on the Warner Center area to take advantage of the rezoning. There have been a number of big ticket trades and developments planned there, as well as a steady stream of smaller sales and filings. Last week, Bolour and Associates got into the game with the purchase of a three-acre development site on Oxnard Street.

The plan leaves some things to be desired, though. Developers have proposed 2,500 residential units since 2013, but none of them have been affordable. Local Councilmember Bob Blumenfield asked the city to find ways to incorporate affordable housing into the plan earlier this year.

At least one other L.A. property of Virginia-based Northrop Grumman is headed for redevelopment. Hackman Capital Group bought a 23-acre site in El Segundo from the company for $81.5 million and is turning it into a creative office campus. Northrop Grumman also has its Aerospace Systems division headquarters in Redondo Beach.
