Present Land Use
office/office w historic overlay; medium high density residential
Document Description
The project involves the construction of an above-ground, five-story parking structures, 5,000 sf of commercial space, and a non-profit theater. The parking structure would provide 400-445 parking spaces. The theater would entail a three story structure with a gross floor area of 23,841 sf and up to 255 theater seats. The project would include a general plan amendment from office and medium high density residential to public and a zone change from office with a historic overlay and medium high density residential to public facility with a historic overlay. The PF-H zone allows for development of a multi-level parking structure and non-profit theater, and deviations to otherwise applicable setback requirements and building height limits with planning commission approval. Commercial uses would be allowed as accessory uses of the parking and theater facilities. The project would also require a variance for the floor to area ratio to exceed 1.0 and max coverage to exceed 60%.
