With its anticipated summer opening date on the horizon, developer California Home Builders is putting the finishing touches on the Q Variel apartments in Warner Center.


The project, located at the northeast corner of Variel Avenue and Erwin Street, consists of a seven-story building which will feature 241 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments above a podium featuring 50,000 square feet of commercial space and a 279-car garage.

Newman Garrison + Partners designed the project, which will include amenities such as a pool courtyard, a fifth-floor deck, a lounge, and a fitness room.  Plans also call for a plaza space at the intersection of Erwin and Variel, which will abut a two-story restaurant space.

The project is a sister development to the Q Topanga, another mixed-use project which is now under construction near the Warner Promenade shopping mall.

The Q is among several Warner Center developments from California Home Builders.  The Canoga-park firm is also planning mixed-use projects along the south side of Erwin Street between Variel and De Soto Avenue.

The Q also sits across the street from The Variel, a senior living facility from South Bay Partners that recently broke ground.
