Document Description
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the City of Los Angeles (City), as Lead Agency, has prepared a Partially Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Report (PR-DEIR) for the proposed Southern California Flower Market Project (Project). Two sections of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) previously prepared by the City, for the Project have been revised to address two deficiencies determined by the Los Angeles Superior Court (Court) in an order issued in April 2021 (April 2021 Court Order) in the lawsuit entitled AIDS Healthcare Foundation v. City of Los Angeles, et al., (Los Angeles Superior Court, Case No. 19STCP05445) (Lawsuit). Except for those two deficiencies, the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) previously prepared and certified by the City under the CEQA was upheld by the Court as to all other issues. The two sections of the EIR that have been revised (hereinafter called the Recirculated EIR Sections) concern the clarification of the Project’s noise-related mitigation measure (MM I-2) and the further evaluation of potential impacts associated with the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG). The Project Site is currently improved with two buildings (the north and south building). The Project will maintain and renovate the Project Site’s north building, but will demolish the south building and construct a new building in its place. The Project would include a new mixed-use development consisting of wholesale trade, retail, restaurant, office, and residential uses. The Project would include 323 residential units (including 10% of units set aside as affordable units for moderate income families), approximately 4,385 square feet of retail space, 64,363 square feet of office space, 63,785 square feet of wholesale space and storage, 13,420 square feet of restaurant space, and 21,295 square feet of event space. The existing north building would continue to operate as the Flower Market with offices on the second floor and an event space and terrace on the fourth floor. The new south building would include the new residential uses, as well as restaurants, a public paseo, retail uses, and additional wholesale flower space.
