More Apartment Development, A Park, and a Chumash Village

The title to this post may sound weird but trying to capture various recent news items related to some sort of development starting with more apartments:

  1. The Northridge-Chatsworth Patch is reporting from the Northridge South Neighborhood Council that a 320 Unit apartment complex is being planned at 19401 Parthenia which was the site of the former Pacific Theatres Nothridge Cinemas and a strip mall. 
  2. The Sherman Oaks Patch is reporting that Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council approved the II Villaggio Toscano residental and retail project at the corner of Sepulveda Blvd and Camarillo Street which is currently open land and walking distance to the Sherman Oaks Galleria.

These latest apartment projects are in addition to the former Valley Music Theatre site being developed into an apartment complex notwithstanding the other ongoing apartment projects in Woodland Hills that I discussed including the Village at Westfield Topanga. Additionaly, there was a recent 2 acre sale in Sherman Oaks that will likely be converted into another apartment complex. Lastly, there are apartment projects throughout the Valley currently and some have recently completed which are now accepting tenants that I have not covered on this blog. 

With all this apartment activity, I have to ask, do we need more apartments and what is the impact to traffic? I fear we will slowly turn into the Westside and lose the easy drives. 

Now for some good news. 

The North Hollywood-Toluca Lake Patch is reporting that a new pocket park in North Hollywood will be built that was on a former DWP water yard at the corner of Fulton Street and Vanowen Avenue. Finally good to hear about park development instead of these ugly apartments.

And now for surprising news.

The Calabasas Patch is reporting that the Leonis Adobe Museum presents a "California Tribal Gathering" of a new Chumash Village who were the original peoples to roam the Valley and throughout Ventura County and Santa Barbara.
