Document Description
Harvard-Westlake School is proposing to redevelop 17.2-acres as an athletic and recreational facility for the School and for shared public use. The Project would remove an existing golf course and tennis facility in order to develop two athletic fields with bleacher seating, ancillary field buildings, an 80,249-square-foot two-story multi-purpose gymnasium, a 52-meter swimming pool with seating and a pool house, eight tennis courts with seating, one level of below-grade parking and a surface parking lot. The Project would include ancillary field buildings, a pool house, a security kiosk, exterior light poles, fencing, and retention of the existing clubhouse structure, putting green, and "golf ball" ornamental light fixtures. The Project would include a 1- million-gallon stormwater capture and reuse system. The Project would also provide approximately 5.4 acres of publicly-accessible open space and landscaped trails and would include off-site improvements. Project development would require excavation and grading to a maximum depth of approximately 21 feet below grade and a net cut/fill volume of approximately 250,000 cubic yards.
