Back on November 24, 2014, the informative Urbanize.LA blog revealed a new apartment project coming to Reseda at 18860 Sherman Way. The project is a 3 story 49 unit apartment with 1,344 sqft of commercial space at the ground level. There will also be 92 residential parking spaces and 3 for retail uses. Additionally, there will be 57 bicycle parking spaces along with 9,339 sqft for recreational and common use. This project will now have a hearing on May 4, 2015 as described in the hearing notice at the bottom of this post.
The location is the old Sherman Way Farm that I believe has been around since the 1960's based on historicaerials.com shown below. Prior to the 1960 looked like someone's front yard as seen in the 1952 and 1959 photos. The property was previously owned by The Thomas W Rutledge Property Trust who sold on April 17, 2014 for $1.6 million to the Reseda 18860 LLC which links back to an office on Sunset Blvd in WeHo which happens to be the A.J.Khair development/construction company. The Reseda 18860 LLC mortgaged the property for $900K on November 20, 2014 which happens to coincide with the project release.

I will be honest, I never shopped at Sherman Way Farm but a nice review on Yelp from 2007 makes me wish I did.
