Document Description
The proposed project would remove the existing St. Francis Hospital complex, including the main hospital, convent, central plant, and other ancillary structures, totaling approximately 189,000 square feet, and replace them with 115 residential condominiums that would cover 5.94 acres of the 7.39 acre site. Within the remaining 1.45 acres, the existing elderly care facility, Villa Riviera, would remain, but the parcel containing it would be adjusted to a size of approximately 31,500 square feet. The remaining lands zoned R-2, Two Family Residential, would be re-configured into three lots of approximately 10,500 square feet each and the two existing residences on these R-2 parcels would be demolished. The R-2 lots have the potential for two residences on each lot, for a total of six residences, no development is proposed at this time. Parking for the project would be accordance with zoning parking requirements. A total of 11 spaces would continue to be provided for Villa Riviera and 255 parking spaces for the 115 proposed condominium units. Vehicular access to the three reconfigured R-2 parcels would be directly from Grand Avenue. Primary vehicular access to Villa Riviera and to guest parking for this facility would continue to be provided from an existing private driveway connecting to the terminus of Arrellaga Street; existing secondary access to the facility from Grand Avenue would also be maintained. Internal vehicular circulation for the new residential development would be provided by a system of private drives and public roads connecting to Micheltorena, California and Arrellaga Streets. Direct vehicular access to some of the parking structures on the site would also be provided from Micheltorena and California Streets.
