Casden’s Latest SoCal Apartment Community Set To Open Its Doors

Empire Landing, a new 276-unit luxury apartment development in the heart of Burbank’s entertainment and media district, is set to open to the public on August 1. The craftsman-styled project, situated on seven acres at the corner of Buena Vista St and Empire Ave, was developed by Casden Properties, one of the largest multifamily property developers in Southern California.

A transit-oriented development, Empire Landing is within walking distance of the Bob Hope Airport Metrolink station. It is also close to two major freeways – I-5 and I-134 – and Bob Hope Airport. It is an ideal location for those working at the many entertainment and media companies in the area as well as in downtown Los Angeles and Glendale. It is minutes from several movie studios, downtown Burbank and the Burbank Town Center. Residents also are within a short walk of the 900k sf open-air Burbank Empire Center with dozens of popular retail stores. A two-acre park, Kid’s Castle, and public recreation center are immediately adjacent.

Designed by Johannes Van Tilburg, FAIA, of the award-winning firm Van Tilburg, Banvard & Soderbergh, Empire Landing comprises craftsman-style residential buildings set in lushly landscaped gardens. The low-rise complex offers resort-style living with recreational amenities and resident services and is fully gated with a guard-staffed entry. It also includes 1k sf of retail space that will be filled withresident-serving convenience shops.

The apartment selections include one and two-bedroom configurations ranging from 760 sf to 1.1k sf. An innovative choice at Empire Landing is a private townhome with an attached two-car garage. These townhomes offer two, three and four bedrooms as well as live/work space in sizes ranging from 1.1k sf to 1.6k sf. There also are 28 affordable flats that have been pre- leased.

Every residence at Empire Landing has a private patio, many with views of the nearby mountains, and nine-foot ceilings. Other standard features are gourmet kitchens with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, limestone finished fireplaces, large oval soaking tubs, full-size walk-in closets, in unit washers and dryers, and state-of-the-art technology wiring. Starting prices range from $2,200 for a one-bedroom apartment, $2,800 for two bedrooms and $3,400 for townhomes.
