Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The proposed Amended Project consists of the following: Plot Plan Amendment #1 (PP 20-02, A1): To amend the previously approved Plot Plan (PP 20-02), allowing for, but not limited to, the following: ? A reduction of building square footage. A reduction of 155,416 sq. ft. when compared to the approved project (2,022,364 sq. ft.). As proposed, the building will continue to be a single, 1,866,948 sq. ft. intensive ecommerce warehouse building, inclusive of 1,807,011 sq. ft. of ground floor warehouse uses, 44,887 sq. ft. of ground floor office uses, and 15,050 sq. ft. of office mezzanine space. The building will have a maximum height of 54 feet, inclusive of mechanical equipment. ? A reduction of vehicle parking spaces. The amended Plot Plan proposes 2,390 parking spaces. This is a reduction of 161passenger vehicle spaces. ? An increase in the number of truck trailer parking stalls. The amended Plot Plan proposes an additional 572 truck trailer parking stalls, for a total of 1,000 truck trailer parking stalls, compared to 428 stalls from the approved project. Due to the reduced building footprint, trucks will also be parked on the south side of the building. On-site truck circulation paths are modified based on changes to the parking configurations. ? Elimination of one driveway. The approved project consisted of six driveways, of which two are along the southern/easterly extension of Van Buren Boulevard. Driveway 5 will be eliminated, allowing trucks to access the truck trailer parking area and dock doors, via Driveway 6. ? Addition of a Pedestrian Bridge. To allow for unrestricted truck movement through the most northern drive aisle (Driveway 1), a new pedestrian bridge is proposed, to be constructed spanning the drive aisle. Pedestrians will access the bridge from a staircase on either side of the drive aisle. The proposed height of the bridge will be approximately 31.5 feet. Tentative Parcel Map 37220: The VIP 215 project site is comprised of five assessor parcels (APN’s: 294-140-013, 294-150-009, 294-170-005, 294-180-038 and 295-300-008) for taxation purposes but is not presently a legal development parcel. The proposed project will include a Tentative Parcel Map to create one legal development parcel. This will also dedicate rights-of-way for the extension of Van Buren Boulevard and Western Avenue and identify required utility easements. It should be noted that the project site does not provide access to existing runways or taxiways at March Air Reserve Base.
