Document Description
The proposed project would be located on an approximately 7-acre site (project site) south of Vessels Circle and west of Walker Street in the City of Cypress. The proposed project includes the development of a portion of the Los Alamitos Race Course parking lot area into a multifamily residential community with 135 dwelling units consistent with the Cypress Town Center and Commons Specific Plan 2.0. The 135 multi-family residential homes would include two types of units: 56 two-story condominiums in four buildings arranged around motor courts in the center portion of the project site; and 79 three-story row townhomes 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 onsite 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 three off-site bioswales and a modular wetland system to collect and treat drainage from the Vessels Circle extension.
