Valley Village Condo Plan Gets Okay

The Valley Village Neighborhood Council last night gave its approval to a plan to construct a 96-unit condominium complex on a site that now houses Steven’s Nursery & Hardware. Pre-existing zoning on the site, located at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Riverside Drive, allows for residential development within the parameters requested by the developer, Schaffel Development Co. Also under consideration was another bid by a friend of the Steven’s family, Mark Gelfat, to keep a smaller nursery running on the site. That request, which would have required an exception to the Valley Village Specific Plan, was not approved. The redevelopment of the site for condominiums will result in the closure of Steven’s, a 50-year-old institution in Valley Village.
