Document Description
The proposed project includes several actions including the reinstatement of eminent domain in the CCN and Uptown Redevelopment Project areas, and the deletion of certain provisions of the Central City North Redevelopment Plan dealing with special development project design standards applicable solely within the Central City North Project Area. Also included in the proposed project is proposed General Plan Amendment/Zone Change in a 17.15 acre area bounded by 3rd, 2nd, and K Streets and I-215. The area of the proposed GPA/Zone Change is currently designated IL, Industrial Light. The project proposes to change the land use designation of this area from IL to CG-1, Commercial General, and to vacate portions of I Street and Kendall Avenue. The proposed GP/Zone Change could allow for approximately 332,798 square feet of commercial uses. Finally, the proposed project includes a development project in a portion of the Uptown North Redevelopment Project Area (Sub area B). The proposed "Mercado Santa Fe" project consists of a retail center of approximately 96,241 square feet of retail use and parking for approximately 440 vehicles included in the preliminary project concept is a 59,241 square foot market, and 37,000 square feet of space of additional retail uses. The Mercado Santa Fe retail project site is located south of 3rd Street across from the historic Santa Fe Depot (which is undergoing restoration). Development of the Mercado Santa Fe project will necessitate the demolition of ten structures (including four residential units and approximately 85,075 square feet of commercial buildings). The proposed retail project would also require the vacation of a portion of K Street, and the extension of L Street through the project site.
