Document Description
The project proposes to redevelop and renovate the existing 1,061,400-sq. ft. Westfield University Towne Center (UTC) regional shopping center located southeast of the intersection of La Jolla Village Drive and Genesee Avenue; north of Nobel Drive, and west of Towne Centre Drive. The proposed project would be the renovation and expansion of retail uses by 750,000 sq. ft. of new retail and the development of 250 multi-family residential units. Alternatively, the applicant could implement a mix of land use scenarios that could include a reduction in new retail and the addition of up to 725 residential dwelling units; up to 250 hotel rooms; and/or up to 35,000 sq. ft. of office space. The land use scenarios would be restricted to a mixture of the above uses that would not exceed 17,800 cumulative average daily trips (ADTs) and 256 in-bound AM peak hour/778 out-bound peak hour trips. The maximum height for residential, hotel, and office uses would be limited to 325 to 390 feet about grade. The project proposes 7,163 parking spaces, in a mixture of structured and surface parking. Additional project features would include a relocated and expanded bus transit center and reservation of right-of-way for the proposed transit center and planned extension of a light rail transit line, and certification under the LEED Green Building Rating System.
