A multifamily residential development could replace a stretch of small medical office buildings in Pasadena.

The proposed development, located at the southwest corner of Euclid Avenue and Cordova Street, went before the Pasadena Design Commission this week for a preliminary review. Plans call for the construction of two U-shaped buildings, ranging between two and three stories in height, which would feature a combined 62 apartments above 99 subterranean parking spaces.

The project, designed by Moule & Polyzoides, would have a Mediterranean-inspired look with a mix of flat and sloping roofs.   The U-shaped building footprints would allow for a series of interconnected courtyard spaces.  No renderings of the project were presented in a staff report.

Project applicant Euclid Cordova Associates, LLC is an affiliate of Regency Park Senior Living, a Pasadena-based developer of independent, assisted living, and memory care communities.

The development site is located just west of a 1980s office building at 388 Cordova Street which is now being converted into condominiums.  One block north at 178 Euclid Avenue, developer Toledo Homes has obtained approvals to construct a 42-unit apartment complex with ground-floor retail.
