Fifield Companies’ Century West Partners wants to build a 310-unit mixed-use project in Monrovia, a neighborhood that has seen a flurry of development in the last few years.

The seven-story, residential-over-retail project would rise at 127 Pomona Avenue, a block north of Metro Gold Line’s Monrovia Station, according to Urbanize. The complex would have 25 units set aside for “very low-income” renters and have 10,000 square feet of retail space. There is parking for 486 vehicles. The architect is Humphreys and Partners.

There would also be a 7,000-square-foot public plaza at the corner of Primrose and Pomona avenues. Amenities include a swimming pool part of a central courtyard and three sky decks. The site is just under two acres and now has two low-rise commercial buildings.

Monrovia Station has attracted a flurry of development recently. Century West’s new apartment complex would be directly across the street from a recently-completed 261-unit project by Legacy Partners.

Directly southwest on the other side of Monrovia Station, Richman Group is planning a 296-unit apartment complex.

Though a good portion of Fifield Companies’ projects is focused in its Chicago home city, the company also develops in Los Angeles. Fifield founder and CEO Steve Fifield and Michael Sorochinsky — founder and CEO of Cyprus Equity Investments — formed Century West Partners to develop multi-family apartments and commercial properties in L.A., according to its website.
