March Business Center Specific Plan (SP-1) South Campus area
Document Description
The Project involves amending the March Business Center Specific Plan (SP-1), specifically the South Campus area, in order to shift the mix of land uses, which will result in similar environmental impacts as compared to (1) the South Campus development originally approved in 2003 (2003 South Campus); and (2) the currently approved South Campus development (Current South Campus). However, any environmental issues that were not addressed in the previous environmental documents for the South Campus Specific Plan, such as energy impacts and the Village West Drive extension, will be evaluated anew. The 2003 Focused EIR evaluated impacts of the 2003 South Campus’s 514.9 acres of developable land and 111.6 acres of Park/Open Space. The proposed Project would reduce developable acreage by 87.9 acres to 427 acres and increase Park/Open Space by 28.7 acres to 140.3 acres. The proposed Project thus significantly reduces the developable acreage. The proposed Project also involves a request for Plot Plan approvals for the following components of the South Campus buildout: Commercial Parcel (61,336 square feet) Additionally, the SEIR analyzes up to 700,000 square feet of high-cube cold storage warehousing within the South Campus Specific Plan. The proposed Project is requesting text revisions to the definitions of “Wholesale, Storage and Distribution – Medium” and “Wholesale, Storage and Distribution – Heavy” to accommodate the cold storage use. etc), Building D (800,000 square feet), Dog Park and Paseo, Caroline Way, and Village West Drive Extension.
