Document Description
Vesting Conditional Use Permit to allow development of a 550-student secondary school on a 4.89 (net) acre site in the (T)RE11-1 and A2-1 zones and, pursuant to Los Angeles Municipal Code Section 12.24.F, to provide relief from various height and setback requirements. The project would include a classroom building, athletics center (500 person occupancy), performing arts center (600 seats), administration building and aquatics center (80 person occupancy) totaling 120,542 feet of floor area. Parking would be provided in an at-grade parking level for 236 vehicles with access provided from the extension of Rinaldi Street. The design will use simple building masses to complement site topography with an emphasis on natural materials, colors and textures and an efficient footprint that utilizes the site's sloping character. The project will be built in up to three phases with initial occupancy by modular classrooms on the upper part of the site and temporary parking on the lower park of the site. The development of the project is expected to be completed by the year 2010. Demolition of an existing single-family residence will be required and approximately 19,800 cy of material would be excavated from the site.
