Document Description
The West Downtown Specific Plan shall guide all land use and development decision-making processes for the 191 acre project site. Development associated with the Specific Plan would result in the addition of 899 residential units, 817,988 sq. ft. of office space, 60,709 sq. ft. of commercial space, 16,000 sq. ft. of industrial space, and 200 hotel rooms. The Land Use concept for the Specific Plan envisions a compatible variety of land uses that support the overarching goals and vision for this area. The Land Use concept focuses on maintaining many of the existing uses, while clustering them into different areas to create more cohesive districts. For each new or revised land use designation, the uses allowed and the standards for development intensity would be specified in the Specific Plan. The Plan Area includes eight land use designations and two special districts. The Specific Plan's development standards and guidelines for building heights, building frontage, and other urban design elements are intended to guide the creation of the creation of well-designed complete neighborhoods in the Plan Area.
