Document Description
The proposed project is located on an approximately 7-acre site (project site) south of Vessels Circle and west of Walker Street in the City of Cypress, California. In its existing condition, the project site is a parking lot with asphalt paving, 6 overhead light poles, and a 60 inch wide strip of ornamental trees, palm trees and grass/shrubs on the north portion. The project site is bounded on the north by the Los Alamitos Race Track, on the west by surface parking lots, on the south by a Costco and a vacant parking lot approved for the Cypress City Center mixed-use development, and on the east by a two-story office building. The proposed project includes the development of a portion of the Los Alamitos Racecourse parking lot area into a residential multi-family community consisting of 135 dwelling units consistent with the Cypress Town Center and Commons Specific Plan 2.0 (Specific Plan). The 135 multi-family residential homes would include two types of multi-family units: 56 two-story condominiums in four buildings that would be arranged around motor courts in the center portion of the project site; and 79 three-story row townhomes that would be located along the outer portions of the project site. The layout of the proposed project is a paseo-style community with a central large open space area that would include a pool and landscaped areas for other active and passive recreation uses. The proposed project also includes an off-site swale south of the project site that would direct overflow from the proposed on-site drainage facilities towards Winners Circle. Access to the project site would be provided via a driveway from a proposed extension of Vessels Circle to the north of the project site. Additionally, the proposed project includes an off-site, 200 foot long bioswale to treat drainage from the proposed Vessels Circle extension.
