Located near the center of the San Fernando Valley, the low-slung neighborhood of Reseda has suddenly become a hot spot for mixed-use developments.

Yesterday, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to demolish a series of small commercial buildings to make way for a new residential-retail complex.  The project, located at 6648 N. Reseda Boulevard, would consist of 205 residential units - including 18 restricted to very low income households - as well as 5,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 280 vehicles.  The proposed building would rise to a maximum height of 61 feet.

A case filing from the Department of City Planning lists the project's developer as Michael Shlomof, through the limited liability company 6648 Reseda.

The proposed development would require a zone change and multiple density bonus incentives.  Further details are currently unavailable.

The subject property sits almost directly across the street from a similar development planned by Los Angeles-based Metric Holdings.
