Document Description
The proposed project is interior and exterior renovations to the existing restaurant facility located at 2614 Shelter Island Dr in San Diego, CA. The existing restaurant facility dining includes indoor and outdoor dining areas, storage areas, office space ancillary to the restaurant, landscaping, dock area, and an open air promenade. While there are no major structural renovations proposed, the project proposes to extensively remodel, renovate, and reconfigure the project site. The proposed project would reconfigure both the existing indoor and existing outdoor dining space, but would not result in any additional seating. The project also proposes to convert existing office space located in the structure on the Southwest corner of the project site to a walkup coffee and gelato shop with no seating proposed. Overall, the proposed project would expand the land area used for structures by approx 449 sf. However, the expansion would not increase the overall occupant load or seating of the restaurant b/c a portion of existing indoor seating would be replaced by an expanded kitchen, bar, and entry area. No seating is proposed in conjunction with the coffee shop. Therefore, the total dining seat occupancy would be reduced from approx 225 sf to 205 sf with implementation of the project. Seating placed in the promenade area would be available to the public, and would not require patronage of either the restaurant or coffee shop for access. No changes are proposed to the existing dock area, or to access to the docks.
