Media Village

A vertically integrated, family-owned development company that offers design, development, construction, and real estate management services undertook the redevelopment of a distressed, but centrally located and desirable, parcel in downtown Burbank, California, and built a mid-rise, mixed-use project on its 2.5 acres. The deteriorating site had been purchased and designated for redevelopment by the Burbank Redevelopment Agency (BRA), which also established development of affordable senior housing as a condition for applicants seeking development rights. Uses now include a parking area on three interior levels; ground-level retail, restaurant, and office space; and 147 units of affordable housing for seniors on three stories above. The project was partially financed with tax-exempt bonds issued by the BRA.
