A Santa Monica based housing developer, Rethink Development, is seeking to cram 8 residential units (along with 1 business unit) in a small commercial lot located at 3376 Glendale Blvd.

The housing developer is using the City’s Small Lot Division Ordinance to subdivide the 9,716sf lot into 9 smaller parcels, 8 residential and 1 commercial. Once subdivided and developed with a “home” each residential parcel would sell at market rate. Prices for the small lot homes are expected to range from $500,000 to $700,000.

3376 Glendale Blvd, located at the corner of Glendale Blvd and La Cleded Ave, was previous used as a parking lot for the Griffith Station Post Office.

In order to squeeze in 8 residential “homes” the developer is seeking to build on almost 100% of the lot, contrary to what is allowed by City ordinance. Specifically, Rethink Development is seeking a conditional use permit to allow yard adjustments to: 1) permit a zero (0) foot side yard between new residential units and between the new residential unit and the commercial unit lieu of the six (6) foot setback required between lots; 2) permit a five (5) foot rear yard in lieu of the 15 (15) foot yard required; 3) permit 2’ minimum horizontal dimension for required common open space (15’) and 2’ for private open space (8’); and 4) allow two inch (2”) separation between buildings on the lot in lieu of the 20-foot and 12-foot required passageways.

This housing development is wrong for Atwater Village. Please lend your voice in opposition to this project, specifically to yard adjustments they are seeking. A public hearing will be held on Thursday, September 26th and now is the time to voice your opposition.
