Small buildings now occupied by Korean Presbyterian Church of Glendale in Glassell Park could make way for new housing and commercial space, per an application submitted this month to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The property, a corner lot located at 4002 N. Verdugo Road, is currently developed with single-story structures completed in the 1930s and 1940s. Khajak Harootun or KAS Verdugo, LLC is seeking city entitlements to raze those buildings, clearing the way for the construction of a new three-story edifice which would feature 14 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above 1,071 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and semi-subterranean parking for 24 vehicles.
Requested entitlements include density bonus incentives to permit a waiver from a transitional height requirement due to an adjacent single-family zone. In exchange, one of the apartments would be set aside for rent by low-income households. The project notably is being built to less than maximum density permitted by zoning, which would allow up to 35 homes on the site.
Ba-Va, LLC is designing 4002 Verdugo, which is depicted in plans as a contemporary low-rise structure centered on a small courtyard and capped by a rooftop deck.
The project applicant is also linked to a proposal which would bring a larger 78-unit apartment complex with retail to a site on Foothill Boulevard in Glendale.
