The project applicant (W-WP Westside Gateway Owner VII, LLC) is seeking approval of a Master Plan, Vesting Tentative Tract Map, and deviations from the Mesa West Bluffs Urban Plan development standards to redevelop the nine-acre project site with a mix of residential lofts and live/work units. The project as proposed requires discretionary approval per the Mesa West Bluffs Urban Plan.
In order to redevelop the project site, all existing buildings, structures, parking areas, drive aisles, and hardscape improvements would be demolished, and a number of mature ornamental trees and other landscape improvements throughout the site would be removed. Site redevelopment may also require soil remediation due to past and present light industrial and manufacturing uses, as well as utility infrastructure improvements along the northern and western site boundaries.
Once the project site is cleared and graded and all soil remediation is completed, the project applicant would redevelop the project site with the Westside Gateway Project. Under the Westside Gateway Project, the project site would be developed with up to 177 dwelling units, which would include a mix of three product types to create a sense of variation and a series of different neighborhood types, as follows:
-An attached live/work product totaling 89 units.
-A detached live/work product totaling 42 units.
-An attached residential loft product totaling 46 units.
Other project components include landscaping, open space, and recreation improvements; access, circulation, and parking improvements; infrastructure improvements; and sustainability measures. All of the internal private streets and drive aisles, common open space and recreation areas and facilities, courtyards, and streetscapes within the project site boundaries would be owned and maintained by a future homeowners association. The streetscape along the Pomona Avenue and 17th Street right-of-way would be owned and maintained by the City.
