Document Description
The Urban Core Specific Plan (UCSP) would govern the redevelopment of three planning districts in traditional downtown City of Chula Vista, which encompass 690 gross acres within a 1,700-acre study area. The UCSP would provide detailed neighborhood-specific land use and development regulations (zoning), development design guidelines, sustainable development goals, mobility standards, and public realm design guidelines, and numerous other incentives and programs to revitalize the urban core in accord with the general goals stated in the City of Chula Vista General Plan (2005). Each district would contain a mix of primarily low- to mid-rise (45 to 84 feet in height), medium to high-density commercial, office, and residential uses and various public amenities such as improved pedestrian streetscapes, bicycle and transit facilities, public art, and parks, plazas and paseos. Ultimate buildout of the UCSP would allow up to 7,100 net new residential units, 1 million square feet of new commercial retail, 1.3 million square feet of new commercial office space and 1.3 million square feet of new commercial visitor-serving uses by the year 2030.
