A year after our last update, construction forges ahead for a mixed-use complex from Amidi Group at the northern end of Downtown Glendale.

Located on an L-shaped property at 409 N. Brand Boulevard, approved plans call for a mid-rise structure featuring a total of 219 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, nine live/work units and 5,000 square feet of ground-level commercial space.

Bijan & Associates is designing the complex, formerly called the Campus on Brand, which stand eight stories facing Lexington Avenue and Orange Drive to the west, but scales down to a one-story building along Brand Boulevard to the east. Renderings show series of terrace decks which would be used as open space amenity decks for residents and outdoor dining space for a restaurant. Plans also call for a large courtyard street-level opening onto Brand.

Past reports have pointed to an approximately 20-month construction period for the project.

Amidi Group, based out of Northern California, has recently developed an expansion of the TenTen Wilshire complex in Downtown Los Angeles, and has also proposed a 169-unit apartment complex in Hollywood.

The Glendale site sits east across Orange Drive from Next on Lex, a larger 494-unit apartment complex which opened in 2019, and two block south of high-rise developments proposed by Onni Group and Cimmarusti Holdings.
