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, eight tennis courts with seating, one level of below-grade parking and a surface parking lot. The Project would include ancillary field buildings, security kiosks, exterior light poles, fencing, and retention of the existing clubhouse structure, putting green, low brick retaining wall, and golf ball-shaped light standards. The Project would include an approximate 350,000-gallon stormwater capture and reuse system. The Project would remove 240 of the existing 421 trees and plant 393 new trees. The Project would also provide approximately 5.4 acres of publicly-accessible open space and landscaped pathways and would include off-site improvements (improvements to the Valleyheart Drive public right-of-way and an ADA compliant ramp at Coldwater Canyon Avenue). 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 197,000 cubic yards.
