October 18, 1990

The Glendale Redevelopment Agency on Tuesday approved initial plans for two office towers with 560,000 square feet of commercial space in the 400 block of North Brand Boulevard.

Construction by the Howard-Platz Group of Glendale is expected to begin in April. The project will be built in two phases and feature a large public plaza between the towers, said Jeanne Armstrong, redevelopment director.

A nine-story office tower and parking structure for 400 vehicles will be built at the northeast corner of Lexington Drive and Brand.

In the second phase, a 20-story office tower and nine-level parking garage with 1,116 spaces will be built to replace the six-story former Valley Federal Bank building on the southeast corner of Milford Street and Brand. Construction on that phase is expected to start in early 1993.

City officials said Tuesday that a traffic study will be conducted and plans drawn for widening and realigning the portion of Milford east of Brand with the section west of Brand.

Architect Ernest Vasquez of Costa Mesa told agency members that the block-long project will complement the 22-story tower just completed by the Howard-Platz Group at 500 N. Brand Blvd.

Vasquez said the plaza is based "on the concept of a Venetian garden" and will feature sculptures and tall palm trees.
