Document Description
The proposed project would be located within the existing Division 20 rail yard. The Division 20 rail yard is an approximately 45 acre site and is home to the Metro Red/Purple Line train storage and maintenance facilities. It is located primarily between the 1st and 4th St bridges, running parallel to the Los Angeles River Channel and east of Santa Fe Avenue. The Metro Red/Purple Line tunnel portal is situated between Commercial St to the north; Ducommun St to the south; Center St to the west; and the LA River Channel to the east. Construction of the portal widening will require the acquisition of an existing industrial use and partial acquisition of a vacant parcel for the tumback tracks. The General plan land use designation for the project site and vicinity is cited in the city's zoning database as heavy/light manufacturing, as well as being identified as a transit priority area. There is one residential land use located adjacent to the southwest corner of the proposed project. There are no other residential/housing, educational centers, institutional or public open space uses in the immediate area, with the exception of SCI-Arc, an architectural school, located on southwest corner of South Santa Fe Ave. and E. 3rd Street, approx.. 200 feet from the southern boundary of the project site.
