After eight months of construction, the concrete podium of a mixed-use apartment building is gradually taking shape just east of the Burbank Metrolink Station.


The First Street Village, which will span a 3.4-acre site at the southwest corner of 1st Street and Magnolia Avenue, will eventually consist of three low-rise buildings featuring 275 apartments, 19,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, and parking.

CBA Partnership is designing the trio of five- and six-story buildings, which will each be organized around a T-shaped central courtyard.  Renderings also show a series of terrace decks which will be used to provide open space for residents.

The first phase of the First Street Village, which is owned by Del Rey Properties and is being developed by Chandler Partners, is on pace for completion in 2022.  As of July 2020, the second phase of the project was expected to break ground roughly halfway through construction of the first.  The third phase would follow at the halfway completion point of the second phase.

The First Street Village is one of a handful of large mixed-use project in the works near the Burbank Metrolink Station, including new developments at 777 Front Street and adjacent to the Burbank Town Center Mall.
