Five-Story, 296-Unit, Residential Building with Seven-Story Garage Proposed for Next to Train Station
In his weekly report (https://goo.gl/aOqX7O) City Manager Oliver Chi reports that ...
~ A five-story, 296-unit multi-family residential building with a seven-story parking garage is being proposed on the approximately 3.5-acre site at the northeast corner of Magnolia and Duarte Road, just south of the train station.
Chi writes that, "the project proponents have recognized the importance of designing the proposed residential property in such a manner so as to respect the scale and character of surrounding neighborhoods. To that end, the project envisions that the building be stepped-back along Magnolia Avenue to better blend with the scale of that particular street."
If you have thoughts about the proposal, there will be a public meeting on Wednesday, June 21, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Knights of Columbus Hall (130 W. Pomona Ave.). If you have any questions, contact Planning Division Manager Sheri Bermejo at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 932-5539.
