As we wrote the City Council, there is no difference between the Town Center and the Glendale Galleria along Colorado Street and Central Avenue. Both facilities are completely enclosed; the only difference -- the Town Center is a box without a lid. The Town Center will have a 70-foot high wall along these two streets, creating a canyon on Central. We suggested they move the theater to the east side of the parking structure and have storefronts with several entrances along Colorado and Central and a street-level passageway into the Town Center.

A proposed mixed-use project along Colorado Street that was voted down by the City Council last June because it was too big has been scaled down and the public can comment on its draft environmental impact report through Monday. Glendale-based CMGT Construction Co. initially wanted to build a four-story building with 90 residential units, 28,828 square feet of retail space, a daycare and a restaurant on a .99-acre lot it owns at 507-525 W. Colorado St. Nearly a year after the development was denied, the commercial component is supplanted with 18,000 square feet of medical-office space and the daycare has been nixed, while the 1,700-square-foot restaurant is scaled back to a 1,000-square-foot counter-service eatery with limited seating, according to the draft environmental impact report.

A new apartment complex in downtown Glendale is betting that young city dwellers will pay a premium for units as small as 375 square feet in order to have access to a variety of amenities and live in the heart of the city.

City officials say parking permits may be the imperfect answer to a years-long fight waged between residents and car dealerships along South Brand Boulevard. On Monday, the Transportation and Parking Commission supported streamlining rules for a special permitting process in an effort to strike a compromise between the competing interests. “It's not a perfect plan. It's a start,” said Commissioner Aram Sahakian in front of about 25 people at the City Hall meeting. If the City Council eventually approves the ordinance as recommended by the commission, the city will create a “preferential parking district” bounded by Central Avenue to the west, Colorado Street to the north, Glendale Avenue to the east and San Fernando Road to the south.
