Present Land Use
The majority of the land surrounding the project site is developed (commercial, industrial, and education) and urban. Open space is also located outside the project area, including the Torrey Pines State Reserve to the west, and Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve to the east. The project site is subject to the City of San Diego General Plan, community plans, and any applicable bicycle and pedestrian plans.

Document Description
Note: 1 CD The project proposes the disposal (sale) of the Cal Sorrento Property located within Sorrento Valley in San Diego, CA. The purpose of the project is to dispose of excess State-owned property that is not being occupied or utilized. After researching the potential to market the buildings with historic preservation covenants for rehabilitation and adaptive use, Caltrans has determined that it is neither prudent nor feasible to sell the property with historic preservation covenants for the buildings. The SVP Historic District and Sorrento Tower Complex represent two historical resources that are eligible for inclusion in the California Register of Historical Resources and National Register of Historic Places. The project consists of two build alternatives that ultimately dispose of State property. Under Alternative 1, Caltrans would transfer all five historic properties out of State ownership in "as-is" condition and without historic preservation covenants. Under Alternative 2, Caltrans would sell the property without the five historic properties by demolishing the buildings prior to transfer out of State ownership.
