Document Title
Housing Incentive Program Expansion and 788 San Antonio Road Mixed-Use Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Document Description
The project would involve an amendment to Section 18 of the Palo Alto Municipal Code (PAMC) to allow the application of the Housing Incentive Program (HIP) to the 18 parcels within the program area. This would allow for increased density of multi-family residential development along San Antonio Road corridor. The text amendment would involve the following changes to the zoning regulations that apply to these properties: Allow a waiver for housing projects to exceed maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR), up to 2.0; allow a waiver to exceed maximum site coverage; eliminate maximum housing density requirements; allow rooftop gardens to count towards required open space; exclude retail area from parking requirements; exempt certain area in subterranean garages from counting towards FAR; and allow a waiver to reduce requirements related to preservation of existing retail space to allow for housing projects. In addition the project would also involve development of two of the 18 parcels within the program area, at 788, 790, and 796 San Antonio Road. This development would involve the demolition of the two existing on-site one-story commercial structures and the construction of a four-story mixed-use structure with one retail tenant space, 102 dwelling units, and a two-level subterranean parking garage.
