The president of one of the biggest apartment developers in Santa Monica says he loves eating at Fritto Misto, but isn't sure what the restaurant's future will hold if his company redevelops the downtown property.
In December, NMS filed applications with the city for development agreements at 601 Colorado Ave., where Fritto Misto is, and at 501 Broadway, the current site of Performance Bicycle.
Santa Monica Now Juggling 32 Development Applications
The very early plans call for two separate mixed-use projects that would total 150 residential units. Combined, they would have 219 parking spaces and 17,400 square feet of ground-floor commercial and retail space. Each building would be six-stories tall. Both projects require City Council approval.
They are among the latest applications for development agreements to be filed with the city. Three others have since been filed:
- 1613 Lincoln Blvd.: Five-story, 56-unit mixed-use building with 3-level subterranean garage. Submitted Dec. 11, 2012 by Gregg Goldman, Cypress Equity Investments LLC.
