Document Description
Construction of a new in-line Commercial Building and Restaurant with a Drive-Thru lane situated at the southwest corner of Sepulveda Blvd and Pennsylvania Ave within the C3-PP (Solely Commercial District - Precise Plan Overlay) zone and R-3 zone. The commercial building is L-shaped and positioned at the northeast quadrant of the project site, with the main entrances located toward interior parking and circulation, and a drive-thru lane located along the exterior beside Sepulveda Blvd and Pennsylvania Ave. Access to the site is proposed from an existing front driveway and new pedestrian pathway on Sepulveda Blvd, and a new rear driveway on Pennsylvania Ave. The parking area provides 53 parking spaces, which include 2 EV charging stations, 3 accessible spaces, and 5 compact spaces. The building heights are 25' to the top of the sign element, 21'6" at the drive-thru restaurant, and 17'6" at the in-line commercial area. The total building floor area measures 5,223 sf, which include 2,613 sf of restaurant use with a drive-thru lane and 2,620 sf of in-line tenant space for retail and restaurant use, resulting in a 0.13 FAR within the max 0.60 FAR analyzed in the 2009 General Plan EIR (SCH No. 2008111046).
