Freedom Circle Focus Area and Greystar General Plan Amendment
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Industrial Office and hotel
The project consists of two parts: preparation of a Focus Area, to be incorporated into the General Plan; and the Greystar General Plan Amendment. The Freedom Circle Focus Area is envisioned to be an intensely urban environment, with Great America Parkway and Mission College Boulevard retaining their commercial character. The Focus Area would allow, subject to a future planning study, 2,500 dwelling units beyond those anticipated in the Greystar General Plan Amendment, and 2 million square feet of additional office space beyond that allowed under the current high-intensity office designation.
The Greystar General Plan Amendment proposes to change the General Plan land use designation for the 13.3 acre Greystar site from High Intensity Office (maximum Floor Area Ratio of 2.0) to Very High Density Residential (51-100 Dwelling Unit/Acre). The site is bounded by San Tomas Aquino Creek to the East, Freedom Circle to the West, and Highway 101 to the south.
