The City of Glendale’s Planning Commission recently heard a request to rezone approximately 33 acres at the NWC of 99th Glendale Avenues, for a new mixed-use development which will include multifamily, a medical office building, assisted living and commercial/retail uses.
The request was made by Burch & Cracchiolo, P.A., on behalf of developers, Mangat Investments II, LLC and Continental 562 Fund, LLC, for a Minor General Plan Amendment from Business Park to Entertainment Mixed-Use and to rezone the site from Agricultural to Planned Area Development. The request was heard and recommended for approval by the Planning Commission on April 1st.
The project, known as 99th & Glendale Avenues Mixed-Use, includes six total parcels. Parcel one will house the planned two-story, 292-unit Springs at Westgate multifamily community being developed by Continental Properties, Inc. The multifamily portion will sit on approximately 18 acres and will include a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units in 12 total buildings, as well as amenities such as a 4KSF clubhouse, pool and fitness area, car care area, pet wash station and pet playground, picnic areas, storage lockers and more. A total of 488 parking spaces will be provided including 24 garage spaces, 277 carport spaces and surface parking.
Parcel two will contain the planned 30KSF 99th and Glendale Medical Office Building, which will sit on approximately 3.5 acres and provide 187 parking spaces.
Parcel three will house an assisted living development on 3.5 acres and parcels 4a-4c will house the commercial/retail uses. According to the project documents, some of the intended uses will be for entertainment and sports facilities.
The project’s design will incorporate, “a common architectural design theme that will create a high-quality mixed-use development. The design, as described in the PAD, creates a compatible design throughout the overall development and demonstrates articulation, varying wall planes, heights, projections, and a variety of colors and materials.”
Primary access to all six parcels will be from driveways designed to coordinate with existing driveways at the north part of Glendale Avenue. Access to the Springs at Westgate will be from a shared access from Glendale Avenue. Access to the medical office building, as well as a secondary access to the multifamily development will be from Myrtle Avenue.
The project has not yet gone to City Council for approval.
