A new mixed-use development is being proposed approximately one mile from Westgate Entertainment District at the SEC of Glendale and 83rd Avenue.
Planning consultant, Jon M. Froke Urban Planning, LLC, on behalf of property owner, Rightstart Subsidiary, LLC, recently submitted preliminary plans to the City of Glendale and is requesting to rezone the approximately 8.23-acre vacant site from Neighborhood Shopping Center to Planned Area Development in order to allow general commercial and high-density residential uses. They are also requesting a General Plan Amendment from Planned Commercial to Corporate Commerce Center.
The intended mixed-use development, dubbed G83 Plaza, is proposed to complement the nearby Westgate Entertainment District and surrounding neighborhood, according to the staff report. Conceptual plans for the project include a multifamily residential component up to four stories with 88 units, a four-story, 120-room hotel and general commercial uses that may include, “financial institutions, a hotel, convenience stores, fast food restaurants, a health club, office uses and a medical and dental office building pad site.”
