A developer is looking to build an apartment complex in an area of Sylmar that mostly consists of single-family homes and some warehouses.
Daniel Wilshard, whose family trust owns the site, filed plans with Los Angeles for the 132-unit building at the intersection of West Foothill Boulevard and West Roxford Street, according to Urbanize.
In exchange for a density bonus, the developer would set aside 19 apartments for very-low income renters, about 14 percent of the total. Wilshard is also requesting a reduction in required parking spaces.
Plans call for 1,337 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a three-level garage with 143 spaces, as well as a roof deck. The second floor includes two courtyards. The complex would replace a pair of single-family homes.
Near the 210 expressway, the development site is a block from a more heavily-developed commercial area where Rexford Industrial recently purchased a warehouse in November.
