After getting different messages from two La Jolla Community Planning Association subcommittees, a mixed-use project proposed for a major La Jolla intersection was approved at the LJCPA meeting Nov. 5.
The Girard Avenue Lofts development is planned for Girard Avenue where it meets Torrey Pines Road at the entrance to The Village.
It includes three connecting two-story buildings at 7606 Girard, currently a vacant lot between Vons and the Tempur-Pedic mattress store. The plans include 1,960 square feet of ground-floor retail, 17 loft-type apartments over parking and one accessory dwelling unit on a pedestrian path at grade level. The apartments would range from 350 to 755 square feet.
