Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project involves demolition of a vacant approximately 2,400 sq. ft. building, supported by 14 24-inch piles, located at 1050 North Harbor Drive over the San Diego Bay. The building was most recently used by the Bay Cafe as a restaurant, which ceased operations in January 2014. The proposed project will result in the demolition of only the building, leaving the concrete pad and 14 supporting piles and creating a public access area with surface improvements (i.e., railing, enhanced paving or bricks, benches, or tables and chairs) that match the North Embarcadero Visionary Plan (NEVP) Phase 1 project that is under construction adjacent to the project site. The public access area shall be open to the public at all times. The project also includes structural repairs to 12 of the 14 existing concrete pile extension jackets in order to preserve the platform structure and extend its useful life.
