The site of an Encino church will be transformed into 146 senior apartments, according to a filing with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

Century City real estate developer Geneva Street Partners and Denver entity Spectrum Retirement Communities will collaborate on the proposed complex set to rise at 17500 Burbank Blvd., where Bethel Encino ELCA, or Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, currently stands. Senior housing specialist Vessel Architecture has designed the project.

The joint venture plan calls for the demolishment of the existing mid-century church buildings so that a new five-story tower with 238 studio, one- and two-bedroom units plus parking for 167 vehicles can be erected.
