In February 2023, rebar and concrete began to rise above street level at the 6801 Canoga Avenue and 21401 Vanowen Street sites, where a new multi-use apartment complex by Panoptic Development was being built. More than a year later, the status of that project is still largely unchanged, but this time for good reason.

The River Point project, originally planned as a six-story building with 154 residential units, ground-floor retail and underground parking, appears to be growing. Plans currently under review by the Department of Building and Safety show that the project is now planned as a taller eight-story building with 203 residential units on the upper floors. The total expansion is approximately 3,700 square meters of additional building space.

City records show that Stockton Architects, Inc. remains the design firm associated with the project. The earlier version of the building was depicted in a graphic with a colorful stucco facade and was to include amenities such as a fitness center and dog park.

Land records list the property’s owner as 6801 Canoga, LLC, which is managed by developer and investor Gagandeep Lakhmna. Lakhmna, who was previously associated with densification projects in Los Angeles, has also faced protests and lawsuits for his previous work in Philadelphia and Nashville. City records show the property was sold to 6801 Canoga in 2022 for $14.5 million.

The project site is directly across the street from a 47-hectare site that was formerly home to a manufacturing facility owned by aerospace company Rocketdyne. This site has long been marketed as a building site, but no concrete proposals have yet been implemented.

It is also located just east of a recently completed 174-unit project at 21425 Vanowen Street and a planned 211-unit community at 22015 W. Vanowen Street.
