‘Game-changer for the Valley’: Almost 1,500 new housing units to be built at North Hollywood Metro station

As part of an ongoing Metro effort to build housing and community around transportation hubs, a new mixed-use development dubbed District NoHo is coming to North Hollywood’s Metro station.The Los Angeles City Council voted Friday to approve the 15-acre project, greenlighting a massive development that will include 1,481 residential units as well as office, retail and restaurant space.A quarter of the units will be rent-restricted, more than double the ratio required for the city’s ...

As part of an ongoing Metro effort to build housing and community around transportation hubs, a new mixed-use development dubbed District NoHo is coming to North Hollywood’s Metro station.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Friday to approve the 15-acre project, greenlighting a massive development that will include 1,481 residential units as well as office, retail and restaurant space.

A quarter of the units will be rent-restricted, more than double the ratio required for the city’s density bonus.

“District NoHo will be a transformative project for this city,” City Council President Paul Krekorian said in a statement. Krekorian represents Council District 2, which includes North Hollywood.

“This is a truly transit-oriented development that will enable hundreds of Angelenos to live, work, study, shop and enjoy recreation without driving, parking or riding in anything other than zero-emission public transportation,” he said.

Dec. 8, 2023

The project will also bring to the area 750 parking spots reserved for Metro customers, and two acres of open space for the public as well as three shopping plazas. The North Hollywood station is Metro’s third busiest.

District NoHo is one of Metro’s several joint development projects, which are real estate collaborations between Metro and private developers built on Metro land to create more housing around transit.

The project will feature improvements to North Hollywood’s Metro station, including a new entrance to the B Line subway on the west side of Lankershim Boulevard, improvements to the G Line busway terminus, and new internal streets and walkways to break up the large development site, a city report said.

Metro has made the ambitious commitment to build 10,000 housing units in Los Angeles County by 2031, “with the goal of contributing to solving Southern California’s housing crisis,” the agency said in a news release in July. Half of the units are intended to be rent-restricted for lower- to moderate-income households.

While District NoHo will include 366 rent-restricted units, some community members say the project isn’t doing enough to create affordable housing. Reimagine District NoHo, an effort driven by the nonprofit NoHo Home Alliance, has been fighting for the inclusion of more affordable units.

“The government’s obligation is to do the most good for the most people,” said Desmond Faison, with Reimagine District NoHo. “I think that it misses the mark. … We’re building a monolith to capitalism.”

Faison said that only the most wealthy North Hollywood residents would be able to afford to live in District NoHo’s market rate units. Glenn Block, another North Hollywood resident who is involved with Reimagine District NoHo, said the 15 acres the development will be built on could be put to better use.

“This project fails on every level,” he said.

The property will have nearly 100 more rent-restricted units than the original proposal, according to Metro project manager Marie Sullivan. The number of affordable units is limited because funding for the units comes from many different sources, all of which have restricted budgets.

“There’s only so much affordable housing funding that comes from federal, state and local sources each year,” Sullivan said.

Metro is also using income from the market-rate units to fund other aspects of the project, including a park and shopping plazas, she said.

“We need the revenue from market-rate homes to fund a lot of these public benefits,” she said.

District NoHo will also boost the community by creating roughly 10,000 jobs during construction, according to a city report, and an additional 2,500 jobs through property operations. Construction is expected to generate $1 billion.

The development of the property includes the demolition of nearly 50,000 square feet of surface parking lots and industrial space.

The project, which has been in the works since 2015, “provides a model of sustainable development for the whole region,” Krekorian said. “This is a game-changer for the Valley.”

New North Hollywood Development. Changes Are Coming to the NoHo Arts District

Meet District NoHo, a new North Hollywood development and one of the largest in the NoHo Arts District’s 20+ year history.

Since this is the largest development that NoHo has ever experienced, can you give us a description of the entire development?

As a joint development effort with Metro, District NoHo will transform the underutilized 15-acre site at the B Line (Red) and G Line (Orange) station into an arts district-inspired urban village. District NoHo will bring much-needed housing, office and retail steps from transit and it will serve as a gathering space to amplify the thriving community of North Hollywood.

This transit-oriented development includes approximately 1,500 multifamily residential units, over 300 of which will be affordable, 100,000SF of community serving retail and restaurant space, and 500,000SF of office space that are all integrated with a new, integrated transit center as well as bicycle and parking facilities.

Also, a timeline (estimation) when the developments will begin and be completed?

District NoHo will be constructed in multiple phases over a 15-year period. The first phase will include the consolidation of the transit facilities at Metro’s North Hollywood Station. This would begin after project approval by the City and the Metro Board, which is anticipated in early 2024.

What entertainment and arts attractions will you have in the mall? Are you still planning an outdoor theatre/performance area?

Given that District NoHo is in the heart of the NoHo Arts District, it will celebrate and showcase the flourishing arts community. A Strategic Art Plan is being developed with Metro for both static and digital artwork throughout the District. To be designed with a critical mass of installations, it will create a sense of discovery with a series of art landmarks as one wanders through the District NoHo neighborhood. The design will include flexible open space at the heart of the project with a performing arts pavilion intended to support small scale outdoor performances.

How will this development benefit the community from the standpoint of beautification, entertainment, economic benefits, etc.?

The current site condition is a very large asphalt and concrete parking field adjacent to the North Hollywood Station. The urban design of District NoHo will create a street grid which will invite pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles to enter and pass through the urban village and enjoy the three acres of open space and expansive tree lined sidewalks. The series of open spaces will provide shaded gathering places for the community, activated by retail, food and beverage, and community programming. One of the major transit goals is to enhance the Metro ridership experience by consolidating the bus lines to the new Transit Hub providing direct connections to the local and regional bus lines. The project will provide many economic benefits including infusing the NoHo Arts District neighborhood with a vibrant, creative workforce that will work, live, eat, drink and patronize the many unique restaurant, bars, comedy clubs, galleries, studios and theaters that make NoHo such a great place to live. The project will create thousands of new job opportunities in the construction, service, and office sectors as well as substantial property and business tax revenue to the City and County of Los Angeles.

Businesses are concerned that when construction begins it will hinder their business and need to be reassured that this won’t happen. They are concerned more now due to the losses they experienced during pandemic.

We hear and are sensitive to the concerns about potential impacts that might occur to local businesses. The $1B plus project investment will ensure a healthy and sustainable future for NoHo by creating a true mixed-use community for residents, workers and Metro transit riders who will populate the project and patronize NoHo businesses. We will design and implement a construction phasing plan that will be well-communicated to minimize access issues and other potential impacts to the NoHo business community.

The construction plan will be developed in close coordination with Metro to minimize disruption to the existing transit operations during Project construction. All existing services are proposed to be maintained throughout Project construction, although temporary detours or relocation of stops may be required during the various phases of construction.

Communication will be key, and the District NoHo team and Metro will actively communicate with the community as the plans unfold. We will comply with the Los Angeles Municipal Code construction guidelines for construction hours, ensure dust has minimal impact on adjacent properties, and publish approved construction truck and equipment haul routes as required.

Will this new development cause apartment rents to increase?

The State of California and Los Angeles are experiencing a significant housing shortage as demand far exceeds supply. District NoHo is an opportunity to add much needed homes to region via smart transit-oriented density at a major Metro transit hub as Metro continues to investment in improving the rail and bus system infrastructure. Approximately 1,500 new residential units will be provided with a mix of market and affordable housing offerings on transit, within proximity to local businesses, entertainment, jobs and educational opportunities.

How many of the units will be affordable housing/Section 8 for lower income people.

Affordable Housing is important to create a sustainable mixed-use community and is an integral part of District NoHo. The project will provide 20% of the housing options for residents who earn an average of 60% of AMI or less. The affordable housing will be under the guidance of the City of Los Angeles and its guidelines for implementation.

Seniors, veterans, families, and the arts community housing are all areas being considered for the Affordable Housing. The type of Affordable Housing will be, in part, determined by the available funding opportunities in the market at the time the Project receives its final approvals.

How can I find out more about the project?

When you crave tacos in The Valley, North Hollywood is the 'hood to satisfy it. In NoHo, customers line up around the block to taste handmade tortillas, thick, zesty salsas, and well-seasoned meats. However, there is nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on a sub-par plate of tacos, so here is our list of L.A. TACO-approved taquerías spanning a curbside taco shop with a Peruvian-inspired salsa, a true birria specialist, and just a straight up textbook-perfect al pastor.

Below, find the five best taquerías in North Hollywood. ¡A taquear!

Pablitos Tacos is adjacent to the iconic Circus Liquor on Burbank and Vineland. Though its moniker includes “tacos,” Pablito’s has everything. Burgers, pizzas, fries, wings, and chiles rellenos are just a few plates on its menu. The taco shop also has aguas frescas, with flavors rotating daily but always featuring a horchata. The superstar taco, though, is their lomo saltado. The meat almost melts in our mouth upon that first big bite. And the handmade tortilla smells like home. That Peruvian-inspired green salsa borders on a huancaina sauce and salsa verde all at once and tastes so incredible that you'll want to lick your plate afterward. Pablitos Tacos doesn’t only have lomo saltado as their carne option. You can also order birria, asada, al pastor, pollo, chicken mole, and chicharrón. All are good choices!

Monday to Sunday, 5 p.m. - midnight, or Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. If there’s a long line, wait it out—you won’t regret it. 5600 Vineland Ave., North Hollywood, CA 91601. Closest Metro lines and stop: Bus Lines 90, 154, 162 - “Vineland/Burbank.”

Angel’s Tijuana Tacos always has the longest lines. Their cult following checks out with their social media presence, considering that the taquería has 400k Instagram followers and several pop-up locations as of publishing this story—including one in Echo Park. Angel’s Tijuana Tacos also has a delicious spread of cucumbers, salsas, and radishes that you can serve yourself after your order. If you get tacos, you’ll be blown away by the chewy handmade yellow corn tortillas and flavorful meat—al pastor, carne asada, pollo, chorizo, or cabeza. You’re not limited to tacos when you visit Angel’s, however. You can also get a torta, a quesataco, nachos, mulitas, vampiros and burritos. (Many people were getting burritos here, which are $9, instead of a $2.50 taco. We can't blame them because they’re the size of a football). To best keep up with Angel’s Tijuana Tacos and its business hours, check the taquería’s Instagram.

10945 Victory Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91606. Closest Metro lines and stop: Bus Lines 90, 162, and 164 - “Victory/Vineland.”

Birriería San Marcos's properly stewed beef birria is one of the city's birria O.G.'s and always hits the spot. A taco here means it will be dipped in consomé and served with a healthy serving of birria de res. Order a taco dorado (grilled crispy), a keto taco that uses crisped cheese as a tortilla-like wrap, and a quesataco, for the perfect birria plate. Also, the horchata at this taco truck is top-tier with light-brown specks of canela that add the richest sweetness to the drink. It also removes our spicy sensation, thanks to the red salsa that came with our order. Also included in an order here are chopped cilantro and red onion, lemons (not limes), and sliced radishes. Their menu is vast and includes quesadillas, tostaditas, vampiros, burritos, consomé, a birria plate, and tortas. And, of course, we’d be remiss not to mention their ever-popular birria ramen. In a time of birria over-saturation, Birriería San Marcos is worth it.

You can find them Tuesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., for some tasty birria in whichever form you’d like.

5621 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601. Closest Metro lines and stop: Bus Lines 152, 154, 224, and 237 - “Lankershim/Burbank” or Metro B and G Lines - "North Hollywood Station."

Taquero Jhonatan, Tacos El Tigre's lead taquero, knows what he’s doing. He’s got the al pastor on a trompo, with a pineapple on top—as God intended. He’s also got a señora making tortillas a mano (by hand). And, to top it all off, he carefully curates his drink menu. We visited on a rainy day, and El Tigre was serving champurrado. (They only offer it on rainy days). In the summer, on the other hand, El Tigre will have aguas frescas, including—but definitely not limited to—jamaica, horchata, naranja, and pepino. All made from scratch. The handmade tortillas are the right kind of thick to hold all the meat and toppings. They’re also not too thick, like to the point where all you can taste is the masa. The cabeza was the M.V.P. cut here, perfectly crisped up on the outside and buttery on the inside. Speaking of the salsas, be forewarned that the red one is atomically spicy. Our lips were tingling for a few minutes, even after we were done eating. The menu at Tacos El Tigre also features burritos, quesadillas, mulitas, tortas, sopes, and fries. In addition to our tacos, we got the carne asada fries—which stood out for being phenomenal out of nowhere.

5600 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601. Closest Metro lines and stop: Bus Lines 152, 154, 224, and 237 - “Lankershim/Burbank” or Metro B and G Lines - "North Hollywood Station."

El Venado immediately gets bonus points for bumping music, creating an awesome vibe. One night, it may be Los Enanitos Verdes’ Luz de Día playing on the taco spot’s speakers, and on another night, it may be just straight cumbia. In other words, you get the overwhelming sense that the people working at El Venado are proud to be Mexican. El Venado offers the cheapest tacos on this list. Their menu features carnes like asada, pollo, cuerito, lengua, suadero, carnitas, chorizo, and al pastor (with piña, of course). Additional menu items include loaded papas, tortas, quesadillas, fries, and burritos. Be warned, though, these salsas are spicy. They also offer ample seating. Any self-respecting taco aficionado has no problem eating tacos standing up. That said, we also love having a chair and a table that allows us to only focus on eating instead of balancing our plate.

El Venado is open Tuesday-Sunday, 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. If you find yourself in NoHo within these hours, I can’t stress enough how much I recommend stopping by El Venado. (Pro tip: Check Instagram to ensure they’re at their regular spot.)

LOS ANGELES, CA — Sometimes it’s the little things that have the biggest impact. That’s why the Nextdoor Kind Foundation is offering $500 microgrants to 100 Los Angeles County residents with big ideas for changing their little corner of the world.

The idea is simple: Any individual with creative ideas and projects benefiting their Los Angeles County community can apply. The application period is open until March 29. The grant-winning initiatives will be ones that spark civic engagement and strengthen the community, said Devanshi Mehta, Nextdoor Finance Business Partner.

The goal, said Mehta, is “to focus on inspiring and empowering hyperlocal leaders to create impact in their communities, really, one neighborhood at a time.”

According to Mehta, examples of projects can include organizing a community walk or clean up, connecting the community through murals or other art projects, refurbishing parks or playscapes, purchasing equipment for youth sports programs or clubs, organizing neighborhood or community meals, starting a farmer’s market stand, and bringing groceries to neighbors and community members in need.

“We really want to take the time to back and empower so many leaders who are doing things in Los Angeles,” Mehta said.

In many cases, people are already performing these community services in their daily lives, but the $500 grant could help them scale up or inspire others to get involved, she added.

The grants are designed for individuals, but the applicants can take on projects for the benefit of community groups or nonprofits, said Mehta. One such example would be buying pickleball equipment for the Boys and Girls Club, she added.

“Local leaders understand their neighborhoods best, and the actions that will have the greatest impact for their communities,” said Shireen Santosham, Executive Director, Nextdoor Kind Foundation. “These microgrants will provide civically-engaged Angelenos the opportunity to advance their work and ideas and build connection and kindness in their neighborhoods.”

According to the Nextdoor Kind Foundation, the applications will be judged on how well their initiatives illustrate community impact, foster community collaboration, include measurable outcomes, and help uplift under-resourced communities. The grant review process will take place in April.

Los Angeles County residents can apply for the microgrant here.

It’s the second year in a row that the foundation has given out grants to strengthen communities. In 2023, the Nextdoor Kind Foundation teamed up with the NAACP and Hello Alice to distribute $200,000 to US small businesses owned by individuals of color as part of the Keep It Local Business Grant Program.
