Karen S. Kim NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Edward Yegiazaryan, 45, has called the small, old-fashioned apartment building at 308 N. Central his home for about 14 months.

"It's not a problem for me to move because I'm alone and I don't have any family here with me now," he said.

The City Council made an unusual move on Tuesday when it granted a 14-year development agreement with a developer to lock in approvals for a six-story apartment building at Central and Wilson avenues to cover the decade-plus that may pass before construction can begin. The building, being developed by Vancouver, Wash.-based Holland Partners Group, will have 152 apartments, along with 23 live-work units on the ground floor, facing Central. The project, however, can't proceed as long as Big 5 Sports stays in its single-story building on the southeast corner of Central and Wilson.
