Developers Tease Project that Could Bring Apartments & New Grocery Store to Sherman Oaks
It looks like the developers behind a major housing and retail project next to the Sherman Oaks Galleria are gearing up to take their case to the public. On a newly launched Facebook fan page, proponents ask viewers to imagine something -- anything! -- in place of a large dirt field currently found between the corner of Sepulveda and Camarillo and the 405/101 freeway interchange.
Plans for Il Villaggio Toscano call for it to be a 500-unit apartment complex mixed in with 10,000 square feet of retail and another 45,000 square feet for a grocery store. Word on the street is that it will be a Bristol Farms or Gelsons (we've also heard Whole Foods, which was refuted by corporate. And there's been no Fresh & Easy rumors yet). We're told it would be no taller than the Galleria, which sits across the street.
