Document Description
The Project would develop new office, restaurant, and retail uses totaling 150,600 square feet in one of two development options . Under Option A, the Project would demolish both existing buildings on the Project Site and develop 136,200 square feet of office uses, 12,200 square feet of restaurant uses (of which 6,100 square feet may be used for an entertainment use), and 2,200 square feet of retail uses. Under Option B, the existing 8,442 square-foot studio and production space would be demolished, but the 2,551 square-foot restaurant would be retained, and the Project would develop 134,100 square feet of office uses, 14,300 square feet of restaurant uses (of which 6,100 square feet may be used for an entertainment use), and 2,200 square feet of retail uses. Under either option, the proposed uses would be located within a single ten story building (with an additional rooftop level for mechanical equipment) with a maximum height of 133 feet to the top of the highest occupiable level and a maximum height of 155 feet to the top of the mechanical equipment level. In accordance with the LAMC, both options would provide 310 vehicular parking spaces and 58 bicycle parking spaces (36 long-term and 22-short term) within four subterranean levels, one at-grade level that would be enclosed with the exception of the entrance, and three fully-enclosed and mechanically ventilated above grade parking levels. Under either option, the Project would result in 150,600 square feet of floor area within the Project Site with a FAR of 4.4:1.
