A developer has proposed replacing a shuttered Marie Callender’s restaurant in Whittier with 42 townhomes.

Newport Beach-based Mission Pacific Land Company is seeking to redevelop a corner lot at 9829 La Serna Drive with 42 townhome-style condos, Urbanize Los Angeles reported, based on a city environmental report.

Plans call for a mix of two- and three-bedroom homes with two-car garages. Construction is expected to begin next year.

The La Serna Townhomes project is designed by William Hezmalhalch Architects, based in Newport Beach. It will include a series of six, three-story Mediterranean-style buildings flanked by trees.
