Document Description
West Los Angeles Transportation Facility The proposed project consists of a state-of-the-art transportation facility from which to operate a fleet of up to 175 Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered buses and to provide improved public transit service in the central and western areas of Los Angeles County. Relocation of existing operations at Division 6 in Venice to this location would allow Metro to expand service from a more centralized location in response to growing ridership. Development of the transportation facility on the 4.66-acre site would provide Metro with expanded maintenance and administrative facilities, CNG fueling facilities, and bus and employee parking. The project would include 53,120 SF in a primary administrative/maintenance building and approximately 18,800 SF of auxiliary facilities. Sunset Avenue Project The proposed project would replace the vacated Division 6 operation with a mix of residential and commercial uses supported by two levels of subterranean parking. Residential uses would occupy several individual structures that would each contain a varying number of dwelling units. Open areas between the individual structures would allow for communal walkways, common space for recreation or garden areas, water features, and landscaping. A maximum of 225 units would be offered, with a total residential floor area of approximately 270,000 SF. Residential structures that face Main Street and Pacific Avenue are proposed with building heights that would not exceed 35 feet, while structures in the center of the site and those facing Sunset Avenue and Thornton Place are proposed to be approximately 45 to 56 feet in height. Commercial uses include approximately 10,000 SF of floor area in a ground floor setting facing Main Street. Commercial and retail space would be occupied by cafe, retail, and health club uses. This site is included on a list of hazardous materials sites compiled pursuant to Government Code Section 65912.5 due to detected contaminants from previous use of the property. However, a health risk assessment has determined that these contaminants do not pose a risk to human health.
