Other Information
The project site is 0.30 acres in size and is currently a vacant 20 units residential complex, commercial space, and the former post office. The existing buildings have a total of approximately 40,000 square feet of floor area. The site was recently rezoned with the DSP update, which moved the site into the Block 1 and allowed the site to develop with office space. The previous designation of 1a only allowed residential and retail. The total allowed office space for Block 1 was not changed in the DSP update. However, the DSP update included new provisions to allow sites to propose higher floor area, density, height or changes in standards if they entered into a DA and Community Benefit element as part of the project proposal. The project applicant and City entered into a DA for the site to allow the additional office floor area for Block 1 for a total of 141,333 square feet. There have only been minor permits issued for the residential building since its construction in 1980’s.
