A staff presentation to the Pasadena Design Commission reveals new plans for a multifamily residential complex just south of the 210 Freeway.

The proposed development from Malibu Equities, LLC, slated for a parcel at 713-719 Locust Street, calls for the construction of a new five- and six-story structure featuring 27 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above parking for 19 vehicles.

Desai Architecture is designing the approximately 26,500-square-foot development, which will include a gym, a community room, and a central courtyard.

"The project is modern in design with an expressive composition of undulating facades with varied applications of materials, inset and projecting balconies, angled wall planes, and chamfered windows carried across the two buildings," reads a staff report.

Plans call for an exterior of board-formed concrete, ceramic glazed tile, wood siding, plaster, and metal paneling.

The hearing before the Design Commission is to provide a preliminary consultation. Further review is to be provided at a later date.
