Present Land Use
The Project Site is largely developed with a light manufacturing facility that is occupied by light manufacturing, warehouse, and film production uses (approximately 117,000 square feet) and a surface parking lot. Landscaping is located throughout the Project Site, specifically along the property perimeter and entrance and throughout the surface parking lot. One ingress/egress driveway from Casitas Avenue is provided for access to the Project Site. The Project Site is currently secured with walls and fencing along the perimeter and a gated driveway.
Document Description
The 2800 Casitas Avenue Project (Project), would involve the demolition of an existing 117,000-square-foot manufacturing/warehouse/production building on the approximately 5.7-acre (248,190 square-foot) Project Site. The Project would construct a new 487,872 square-foot mixed-use development, consisting of up to 419 multi-family residential units (including 35 units for Very Low Income households), up to 64,000 square feet of commercial space, and a seven-story parking structure. Commercial uses on-site would include a mix of ground-floor restaurant uses and office space, and a rooftop urban farm/greenhouse. The proposed residential units would be located in four buildings ranging from five to six stories with a maximum height of 85 feet above grade. A seven-story (85-foot high) parking garage on the northwest end of the Project Site would provide on-site parking spaces on floors one through six, and an urban farm/greenhouse on the seventh floor. Off-site improvements include the construction of a secondary access road.
