Garden Grove

5-story bldg. before planners

ARTIST’S RENDERING of the proposed five-story mixed use project at Garden Grove Boulevard and Brookhurst Street.

The transition of the Brookhurst Triangle area into a major commercial and residential hub may take another step forward as the Garden Grove Planning Commission considers a proposal to build a five-story mixed use project there.

Dr. Michael Dao is applying for a site plan and tentative parcel map to construct the project at the northeast corner of Garden Grove Boulevard and Brookhurst Street on a 1.86-acre plot of land formerly occupied by a furniture store and a used car lot.

The project would consist of 9,786 square feet of retail space, 9,270 square feet of medical space and 52 apartment units with a 22.5 percent affordable housing density bonus for “very low income” households.

This proposal comes as the six-story Garden Brook Village mixed-use development located nearby approaches competition and the start of construction for the second residential phase of the Brookhurst Place mixed-use project gets underway.

Also on the agenda is a proposal to demolish two buildings at 12641 Industry St. and 12691 Pala Drive to build a new 148,284-square foot industrial building in the area east of Knott Street and north of the Garden Grove Freeway.

Additionally, planners will consider proposals for a new convenience store at 8725 Garden Grove Boulevard and the construction of two new two-story single family homes at the northwest corner of Beverly Lane and Eneo Place. That’s northwest of Lampson Avenue and Brookhurst Street.

The commission will meet at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19 in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.
