The eight-acre vacant site will be transformed into 573 residential units, and a hotel with approximately 300 rooms, both with associated common areas and amenities. LaTerra SELECT BURBANK has excellent access to public transit, Downtown Burbank shopping and entertainment venues, and the Burbank Media District employment centers. Residents and visitors will have walking, bicycling, and public transit options, as well as recreational opportunities on the property.

LaTerra SELECT BURBANK will have three buildings: two are residential and one is a hotel.

The 573 residential units will be located in one seven-story and one eight-story building with residential common areas, a rooftop terrace, pools, a business center, retail space, bike storage, concierge and access to the Plaza Link to Downtown Burbank and Metrolink Station.

The hotel building, located at the southeastern end of the property, will include amenities such as a pool, a fitness center, a restaurant and meeting rooms.

An extensive traffic study is being prepared to analyze traffic and recommend improvements. Keep in mind that it is less than a few minutes' walk to the Metrolink Station from the project site. We believe that many of LaTerra SELECT BURBANK residents, visitors, and employees will use local public transportation to travel. Additionally, the project will implement a Traffic Demand Management (TDM) plan to promote the use of alternative transportation such as public transit, ride and bicycle sharing, and walking to reduce automobile trips.

The project will achieve LEED Gold certification, one of the highest levels of green building design and construction. It will incorporate resource-efficient features to reduce energy and water consumption such as bike sharing facilities, electric car charging stations, solar panels, energy efficient lighting, windows, and equipment, and drought-tolerant landscaping.

There will be on-site bicycle storage for residents, visitors and employees: 57 residential and 16 hotel bicycle parking spaces.
