Document Description
The proposed project would include the development of 1.2 acres to accommodate a downtown mixed-use center of 129,351 square feet (sf) including retail (17,116 sf); 53 residential units (56,406 sf), including 3 low-income affordable housing units (56-406 sf); and a 70-room hotel (55,829 sf), generally of 4 to 5 stories, but reaching a maximum of 6 stories up to 74 feet in height. A 2nd-level view terrace is proposed with access from Marsh Street. Two levels of parking (one below grade) with access from Marsh Street, totaling an additional 59,372 sf, would serve both residential and commercial uses, as well as 40 City-owned public parking spaces. The project also includes improvements to Garden Street, between Higuera and Marsh, similar to the City approved Garden Street Plan, as well as paving improvements and traffic control (e.g., bollards) to Garden Alley. The project would reconfigure private and public parcels and lead to the demolition, relocation, and modification of private and public structures and surface parking.
