Fresh from the folks at The Daily News is word of another apartment development project in Woodland Hills at the former Catalina Yachts manufacturing site. (As a kid growing up, I always wondered why there was a boat manufacturer in Woodland Hills of all places naively thinking that it should be next to the ocean).

Catalina Yachts moved to Florida about two years ago (including well paying jobs) but the company still maintains a sales office on the property. 

This new development will bring 600 units in addition to the other apartment development activity currently taking place for those who havent noticed equating to a total of almost close to 2000 units. I discussed the other activity taking place back on April 24, 2012 with a list shown below and this is only for Woodland Hills which doesnt cover the other apartment development activity taking place throughout the SFV. 
  1. The Village at Westfield Topanga which will add a Costco, 50 shops, office tower, hotel, and more shops. But there is a pending lawsuit so this could get delayed significantly or even cancelled.
  2. The Panavision site being converted to a 707 unit apartment complex at 6219 De Soto Ave.
  3. A 300 unit apartment complex near Canoga and Vanowen  at 6701 Eton Ave.
  4. The Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne site may also be developed into 4,000 multifamily units which is currently for sale
  5. The former Catalina Yachts manufacturing site at 21200 Victory Blvd will be converted into 600 units.

Is anybody concerned with the impact to traffic, noise, pollution, overcrowding, parking, and rental demand  notwithstanding the loss of jobs as a result of Catalina moving? Heck, lets just bulldoze the Topanga Mall and build more apartments too. The only positive thing about this location is the Orange Line and Warner Center being nearby to aid with this upcoming traffic glut.
