Document Description
The proposed project would develop a mixed use project on approx 7.71 acres of active and former petroleum-producing land within the historically prolific Signal Hill oilfield. The proposed project would consist of retail and food service businesses on the eastern side of the project site; attached and single-family housing on the western side of the site; and two outdoor plazas--one centrally located and the second at the southeast corner. The residential component would include 4 single-family homes on the site's western edge, as well as 199 residential units with 3 and 4-story massing "wrapped around" a 6-level, 566-space parking structure. A 2-story restaurant with viewing deck and approx five 1-story retail spaces would be located on the eastern side of the residential complex. The retail components would wrap around an outdoor plaza/community gathering area in the interior of the project site. There would be four points of access for the commercial and multi-family residential uses -- one each on Cherry Ave and East Burnett St and two on Crescent Heights St. The second, westernmost driveway of Crescent Heights St would predominantly serve the multi-family residential units. Access to the single-family residential units would be on Rose Ave. The proposed project is anticipated to involve extensive grading, which would include replacement and relocation of soils that have been substantially disturbed by the site's former oil extraction uses, along with removal and relocation of underground utilities and oil extraction infrastructure, there are 27 active or abandoned oil wells on the project site. Only one well, located in the southwest corner of the project site, will remain active.
