The approximately 9.18 net acre site is comprised of one parcel (APN 949-220-048-8) located along Jefferson Avenue northwest of the intersection of Jefferson Avenue. The project will require a design review and development permit from the City of Murrieta. The proposed site will be developed with 10 buildings which will make up the Jefferson Avenue Apartments Project. The site is planned to contain 7 apartment buildings that will ultimately provide a total of 160 apartment units at a density of 17.43 dwelling units per acre. The project proposes 18 parking garages for residents of the proposed Jefferson Avenue Apartments, which will contain a total of 160 parking spaces, or 1 garage space per dwelling unit. Additionally, the project proposes 180 additional parking spaces for resident and guest use; these spaces are inclusive of 34 electric vehicle spaces, and 8 handicapped spaces, for a total of 340 parking spaces provided. Access to the project will be provided by two gated drives located on Jefferson Avenue. Off-site improvements that need to be completed as part of the project include curb and gutter on the adjacent street, and lighting and landscaping along Jefferson Avenue on the project side of the street.
The Project includes a leasing office, a club house with a tree covered patio, and a gym for residents. The following additional amenities will be developed in support of the project: BBQ area at the swimming pool; swimming pool with spa; children’s play area with playground equipment; dog park; and, open play area adjacent to the pool. The Project will install two WQMP Basins, one at the northwestern corner of the site, and one at the southeastern portion of the site. These bioretention basins will collect and manage onsite runoff. The Project will connect to all utilities — water, natural gas, electricity, sewer, and telecommunications — adjacent to the project site within Jefferson Avenue. Utilities, such as the electricity lines fronting the property will be undergrounded as part of the construction of the Project. Although the project does not include any onsite solar facilities, it does include the installation of 34 electric vehicle charging stations.
