"The 212,000-square-foot complex at Mission Street and Meridian Avenue will include 14 artist lofts, 50 Craftsman-style townhouses and three single-family homes. It will include 324 underground parking spaces, half of which will be set aside for commuters, along with retail space for a restaurant and small grocery store... The 14-mile Gold Line connecting Pasadena and Los Angeles is scheduled to open in July. Other transit-oriented developments along its route include Central Park Market, a 347-unit apartment, retail and parking complex at the Del Mar station in Pasadena, scheduled for completion early next year."
