A year-and-a-half after razing an L.A. River-adjacent warehouse, construction is ramping up for Fairfield Residential's Wylden Apartments with the arrival of a red tower crane.

The project, now taking shape just south of the Glendale Freeway at 2910 San Fernando Road, will eventually consist of a five-story wood-frame building featuring 370 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. The new housing will wrap around a central parking garage with space for 600 vehicles.

In exchange for density bonus incentives, Fairfield will be required to set aside 31 of the apartments as deed-restricted affordable housing at the very low-income level.

Per an environmental study published by the City of Los Angeles, construction of the project is expected to occur over a roughly 20-month period, while the Fairfield website advertises a 2024 completion date.

Fairfield has recently built several large multifamily developments in the City of Los Angeles, including the Ox on Vela and Chroma apartments in Warner Center, as well as the Aliso development in the Arts District. Fairfield has also secured approvals to build a large mixed-use project next to Dinah's restaurant in Westchester.
