The site of an unfinished condominium complex in Monterey Park could soon be developed with new single-family homes.

The 6.2-acre property, located at 1688 Garvey Avenue, was approved for the construction of 31 condominiums in the late 1970s.  While some work was completed for the project - including the installation of water and sewer lines - construction ceased by the early 1980s, and the limited improvements have gradually decayed in the three decades that have followed.

Now, according to an initial study published by the City of Monterey Park, local real estate development firm Center Int'l Investments, Inc. has proposed to recommence work on the property.  Their plan for the site calls for the construction of 16 single-family dwellings arranged along a new private road ending in a cul-de-sac. 

The collection of two-story dwellings, designed by architecture firm SLSD, would offer a combination of two-, five-, and six-bedroom floor plans.

Construction of the project is currently anticipated to occur over multiple years, starting with the removal of the 1970s era improvements in early 2021.  Completion of all 16 homes is expected in the third quarter of 2027, according to the initial study.

That timeline is contingent on the approval of several entitlements by the City of Monterey Park, including a zone change, a specific plan, and a development agreement.
