This week, the Pasadena Design Commission is scheduled to consider plans to redevelop a liquor store and an auto repair shop with a mixed-use apartment building

The proposed development, slated for a property at 1435 Lincoln Avenue, calls for the construction of a three-story edifice containing eight residential units above approximately 3,582 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 33 basement parking stalls.

A staff report to the Design Commission describes the project as featuring a contemporary design, with flat roofs, articulated massing, and an exterior of metal panels.  Though the surroundings of 1435 Lincoln is currently a mix of light industrial uses and single-family dwellings, the staff report anticipates that the proposed development may be indicative of future growth in the area.

The staff report recommends that the Design Commission should vote to approve the project, which would be built over a period of approximately eight months.

Pasadena Now reported in 2017 that 1435 Lincoln is being built by Torrance-based FM Marketing & Properties, LLC, and designed by Intwala Design Studio.
