Office project’s designs approved

NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Developers of a proposed 11-story office

building on the corner of Central and California avenues have

successfully cleared a major hurdle, obtaining unanimous approval from


the Redevelopment Agency during the final phase of design review.

Developers of the Glendale Millennium Tower still need to establish

financing for the project. In addition, after more detailed drawings of

the building are completed, the project must undergo an extensive plan


check by various city departments, including building, fire, engineering,

planning and public works.

The process takes three to four months. Developers hope to break

ground by June.

Rodney Khan, spokesman for property owner Roxbury Management Co., said

his firm did not anticipate Tuesday’s unanimous approval by the

Redevelopment Agency.

“We did not think it would be a 5-0 vote, but I think it shows the


agency felt the project would be a benefit to the city,” Khan said.

City Councilman Frank Quintero said as much during the agency meeting.

“I think it’s going to bring a number of benefits to that immediate

neighborhood, including the restaurants,” Quintero said.

The building will include 5,000 square feet of retail space on its

ground floor, three levels of subterranean parking, three levels of

above-ground parking and seven floors of office space.
