Document Description
The proposed project would require the demolition of the 18,450-square-foot Brea Plaza 5 Cinemas (1,110 seats) and 139 surface parking spaces, and subsequent development of a new building on approximately 2.2 acres in the northwestern portion of the 16-acre Brea Plaza Shopping Center site. The proposed building would include a five-story apartment and office building above a three-story parking structure (eight stories total). The proposed project would include a 222,447-square-foot apartment building with 189 units; a 21,355-square-foot co-working office (approximately 4,000 square feet above Custom Comfort Mattress and approximately 8,000 square feet above Grand Salon); and a parking structure (three above-grade levels under the residential building) with up to 397 parking spaces. The proposed project would require a GPA, a zone change from General Commercial (C-G) to Mixed Use I; the applicant would submit a request for a development agreement. The proposed project would result in a net decrease of 2,905 square feet of commercial space and a net increase of 189 residential units at the 16-acre Brea Plaza Shopping Center.
