Burbank residents are being asked to weigh in on a proposal to bring a Whole Foods market — along with a 241-unit luxury apartment complex on top — to the city’s Media District, officials said.
The “Talaria at Burbank” project, proposed for 3401 W. Olive Ave, would offer a “resort living opportunity” that encourages tenants to get out of their cars, said developer Michael Cusumano of the Cusumano Real Estate Group.
All existing structures would be demolished to build a four-level luxury apartment complex on top of a 43,000-square-foot Whole Foods, along with 751 parking spaces, according to the project application. The market will feature a full-service restaurant and bar.
Proposed amenities for tenants include a lap pool surrounded by cabanas, a private pub, a full gym with a spin studio, a business center, a full-service concierge and dry-cleaning drop-off and pick-up.
Located within walking distance from NBC Studios and Warner Brothers, Talaria was designed to appeal to people who work nearby, Cusumano said.
