Document Description
The project is the lease of space on the third level (approximately 18,131 rentable square feet) of an existing retail building located at 10861 Weyburn Avenue, Los Angeles California 90024. The leased space will accommodate a child care center operated by Bright Horizon for approximately 220 children (ages 6 weeks to 6 years) of UCLA employees and students. Child care center hours will be weekdays approximately 7:30AM to 5:30 PM. The site is zoned by the City of Los Angeles with a commercial use designation, C4-2D-0, and the child care use would be an approved use within the city's C4 zoning. The terms of the lease include use of an adjacent outdoor surface parking area with approximately 63 parking spaces, which will be modified to create an outdoor play yard and accommodate a vehicular drop-off and pick-up areas for enrolled children. All tenant improvements will be provided by the landlord. The 10-year lease term will commence approximately in October 2009. Employee parking for the approximately 35 Bright Horizons child care staff will be made available if and when needed within a nearby UCLA parking facility.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 1
Reasons for Exemption
It has been determined that the Project is Categorically Exempt under Class 1, Existing Facilities, CEQA Section 15301, because the action consists of the lease and minor alteration of an existing structure involving negligible or no expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. In accordance with CEQA Section 15300.2, none of the exceptions to the exemption apply because (a) the project is located in an existing building in a fully developed urban area and the project site does not contain any sensitive environment; (b) as described above, while the proposed use of the leased space would result in minimal traffic, the impacts would likely be less than the previous retail use; and, because the project is intended to serve UCLA employees and staff who are already commuting to the campus, this action would not contribute to a cumulatively considerable traffic or parking impact; (c) the proposed child care activity could not reasonably be expected to have a significant effect on the environment due to unusual circumstances; (d) the proposed activity is not located on a scenic highway; (e) the proposed activity is not located on a hazardous waste site; and (f) the proposed lease and minor alterations would occur in an existing building constructed in early the 1950s and designed by Walter Wuderman and Welton Becket Architects AIA. While a historic structure survey has not been conducted by the landlord, the proposed interior modifications and lease of the third level would not be visible from the building's exterior, the interior of the building has been modified several times for different retail uses over its existence, and therefore the proposed action would not be anticipated to result in a substantial adverse change in the significance of a historical resource.
