Finally! probably the biggest mixed residential project in LA over the next 10 years. If this is really happening, there may be a story for upgrading the Orange Line to rail and getting a spur over to Victory.

It's definitely steady. Probly the best way to go until a metro rail line reaches Van Nuys. Even then, developments will likely stick close to 4-7 story developments or modest open park space.

Each unit will feature 3-4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, with floor plans of up to 2,100 square feet. Plans also call for a number of amenities, including customizable finishes, attached two-car garages, balconies, dual-pane windows and private rooftop decks.

The redevelopment of that mall is exciting. It would be neat if all those low-intensity properties adjacent to it(like the chevron) also became larger buildings.

I'm reminded of Rossyln-Ballston, on the Virginia side of DC. Just a continuous corridor of residential and office towers which have replaced gas stations, car dealerships, fast food places, etc, over the last 25 years.

This area doesn't have rail transit though, does it?

It doesn't, but the Metro Orange Line will be converted to light rail in the next 20 years.

Westfield proposes $1.5-billion mixed-used complex at site of aging Warner Center mall

Westfield Corp. plans to demolish its struggling Promenade shopping mall in Warner Center and replace it with a massive mixed-use complex with nearly 1,500 homes, two hotels and a concert venue.

The $1.5-billion project is meant to serve as a downtown district for the West San Fernando Valley and would be an extension of Westfield’s recently opened $350-million Village at Topanga “lifestyle center” across the street.

In additional to housing, plans for a new Promenade include shops, offices and a 15,000-seat arena for concerts and sports.

Also envisioned are 7 acres of open space, including a 1-acre park, known as Promenade Square, that could host outdoor movie nights.

Campus Development to Break Ground in Chatsworth

Uncommon, a real estate firm founded by Jason Larian and Ryan Hekmat, has announced the groundbreaking of "24," a campus-style development in Chatsworth consisting of apartments, creative offices and retail space.

The 24-acre site at Winnetka Avenue and Prairie Street, formerly a Los Angeles Times printing plant, is slated to become the new headquarters of MGA Entertainment, a manufacturer of toys and electronics, including the popular Bratz dolls. The project calls for the adaptive reuse of the former printing facility, creating approximately 255,000 square feet of office space. Additionally, Uncommon intends to build a series of low-rise structures on the surrounding parking lots, creating 660 apartments above shops and restaurants, interspersed with community-oriented green space.

According to a master plan by Santa Monica-based Killefer Flammang Architects, the development will also incorporate a gymnasium, two swimming pool plazas, a sports park, community gardens, a pre-school, a yoga studio, outdoor walking tracks and an amphiteater.

Finally something interesting happening in the Valley. Surprised that this mall (Topanga Plaza) died out since there really isn't much shopping in that area to speak of. Should have opened it up like they did that mall in Pasadena on Colorado Blvd.

This sounds pretty interesting but it also will take 15 years minimum, which sort of dilutes the effect.

Actually there are a number of other projects in the West Valley.
