Document Description
The proposed project would include development of a mixture of retail shops and drive through/fast food service businesses on the western 2.93 acres along the Azusa Avenue frontage and development of 61 single-family detached homes on the eastern and southern 4.99 acres. The retail component of the proposed project would consist of four buildings, totaling 13,000 square feet of floor area, arranged in three distinct building sites. Two sites would be designed to accommodate fast food/drive through businesses. Vehicular access to these commercial uses would be from three drive approaches along the Azusa Avenue frontage, and from an existing driveway along Cypress Street that serves existing fast food businesses on adjacent properties. The residential component would consist of 61 single-family homes in two- and three-story structures, with floor plans ranging from 1,760 square feet to approximately 2,600 square feet. Homes would have three-four bedrooms, with optional bonus areas and loft spaces. The proposed density is 12.25 homes per acre. Vehicle parking would include 122 spaces within attached garages, along with 12 spaces located in driveways, 23 "head-in" spaces located along internal driveways, and 7 parallel spaces along the entrance drive. Vehicular access to the 61 homes would be from Cypress Avenue, via a private, gated driveway located between Los Angeles County Fire Station 152 and an existing restaurant site.
