Last year, the California DMV elected to close a driver's license processing center in Pacoima, citing a tighter state budget and the increased ease of providing services online. That opens up the underlying real estate for redevelopment, as detailed in an application submitted this week to the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Kevin Brunk of 118, LP, listed as owner and applicant behind the project at 11623 N. Glenoaks Boulevard, is seeking city approvals for the to raze the existing building, clearing the way for the construction of a 246-unit apartment complex with a 28,000-square-foot grocery store on the ground floor. Plans call for a mix of studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as parking for 320 vehicles.

Requested approvals include density bonus incentives, which would allow for a larger building than otherwise permitted by zoning rules. In exchange, 28 of the apartments would be set aside for rent as affordable housing.

Archeon Group is designing the contemporary podium-type building, which would also include residential uses at ground level toward the rear of the site, when the building would pare down in height due to its proximity to an adjoining single-family zone. Plans also call for amenities including a children's play area, a yoga area, a picnic area, and a barbeque area.

The development site would sit directly north of the SR-118 Freeway, and a short distance south of the City of San Fernando.
