North Hollywood project would combine apartments with self-storage
Trojan Storage filed plans for similar development two years ago in Sylmar
Developers typically pitch mixed-use developments as compounds with residential, office and retail elements, Trojan Storage, headquartered in Redondo Beach, has proposed a self-storage compound with nine apartments.
The self-storage company filed an application Dec. 1 with Los Angeles City Planning Department to build 227,000-square feet of self-storage with a separate residential component at 7528 North Bellaire Avenue in North Hollywood. The mixed-use residential and storage compound would cover about 4 acres of vacant land around North Bellaire Avenue and Saticoy Street.
The storage segment of the proposed compound would comprise the same size as almost four football fields. Plans filed with the L.A. Planning Department call for two storage buildings. One with about 89,000 square feet would rise to three levels and would be built on a section of the lot near Saticoy Street and the 170 Freeway. Another 132,000-square-foot storage building, around the same size as a typical Target store, would also rise to three levels.
In a section of land divided from the storage component by a wall and a throughway for vehicles would rise a two-level apartment building. The first floor would be devoted to a 66-space parking garage. At least 10 percent of the spaces would be equipped with EV chargers. The second level would feature nine one-bedroom apartments.
Trojan Storage has pitched plans for mixed-use residential and self-storage before. In 2021, it filed an application to build a more than 163,000 -square-foot storage compound along with 25 apartment units at 13260 Maclay Street in Sylmar. Jordan Architects, headquartered in San Clemente, served as the architect for Trojan Storage’s North Hollywood and Sylmar projects, which are both in the San Fernando Valley.
