Document Description
The 2021 Project includes the adoption and implementation of the District at South Bay Specific Plan Amendment (2021 Specific Plan Amendment). Under the 2021 Specific Plan Amendment, the 2021 Project would retain the wide range of land uses included in The District at South Bay Specific Plan that was approved by the City in 2018. The 2021 Project does not propose any changes to the residential or regional commercial uses previously approved under the 2018 Specific Plan for 61 acres of the 157-Acre Site (i.e., Planning Areas 1 [PA1] and 2 [PA2]), but instead, proposes to replace the general commercial and hotel uses that were previously approved under the 2018 Specific Plan for 96 acres of the 157-Acre Site (within Planning Area 3 [PA3]) with light industrial uses, and separate commercial uses, together with privately maintained, publicly accessible open space and community amenity areas described and referred to in the 2021 SEIR as the Carson Country Mart. Specifically, in PA3, the 2021 Project will replace the previously approved general commercial uses under the 2018 Project with a maximum of 1,567,090 sf of light industrial development and supportive office uses and the Carson Country Mart which will consist of passive and active uses including a dog park, botanic garden, children’s play area, plaza areas, garden terrace, flexible event/social lawn, performance pavilion, beer garden, water feature, sculpture garden, bioretention garden, games terrace, and pedestrian and bicycle pathways. Commercial uses and activities will also be integrated within the Carson Country Mart to draw in patrons and visitors to activate and enliven the overall area. Specifically, the Carson Country Mart will include up to 10,000 sf of commercial/retail uses, 12,600 sf of restaurants (with drive-through capability), a 2,200 sf walk-up cafe adjacent to the dog park and event lawn, and 9,000 sf of food and beverage kiosks.
