The Talaria at Burbank project is excited to be beginning the construction process in the month of November 2015. We are pleased to announce that McCormick Construction, a local Burbank business for more than 100 years, is our general contractor. Talaria at Burbank is a 5-story multi-family residential mixed use building with a supermarket on the ground floor and two sublevels of parking. We have worked diligently with the City of Burbank’s various departments to create a safe and efficient construction site. Below you will find information related to the construction of Talaria.

Construction Rules

1)     Approved hours of construction are Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 7:00 pm and Saturday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. No construction is permitted by contractors or subcontractors after hours, on Sundays or City holidays without prior written request and approval from the Community Development Department.

4)     Any work in the public right-of-way must be permitted and approved by the Public Works Department before construction can commence. All construction work in the public right-of-way must comply with Burbank Standard Plans and must be constructed to the satisfaction of the City Engineer. A Public Works Excavation Permit is required. The excavation permit requires a deposit acceptable to the Public Works Director to guarantee timely construction of all off-site improvements.

6)     As required by Mitigation Measure AQ-2(a) of the Final Environmental Impact Report, the Developer shall use low-VOC architectural coatings for all buildings, including the proposed parking structure. At a minimum, all architectural coatings shall comply with the most recent standards in SCAQMD Rule 1113-Architectural Coatings. In addition, no more than 45 gallons of paint shall be used per day for architectural coatings, including both interior and exterior surfaces.

7)     As required by Mitigation Measure AQ-2(b) of the Final Environmental Impact Report, all construction equipment used for the proposed Project shall meet Tier 3 standards, at a minimum. These standards limit the level of emissions, including emissions of NOx, and are met through advanced engine design. This requirement shall be included as a note on all building and grading permits.

8)     As required by Mitigation Measure CR-1 of the Final Environmental Impact Report, in the event that archaeological resources are unearthed during Project construction, all earth moving work in the vicinity of the find must be temporarily suspended or redirected until an archaeologist has evaluated the nature and significance of the find. After the find has been appropriately mitigated, work in the area may resume. A Native American representative shall be retained to monitor any mitigation work associated with Native American culture material.

9)     As required by Mitigation Measure CR-2 of the Final Environmental Impact Report, if human remains are unearthed, State Health and Safety Code Section 7050.5 requires that no further disturbance shall occur until the County Corner has made the necessary findings as to the origin and disposition pursuant to the Public Resources Code Section 5097.98.

Additional surveys will be required if the Project changes to include unsurveyed areas.
