Other Location Info
The project site is located on a 0.52-acre parcel, mid-block on the south side of El Camino Real, near the intersection of El Camino Real and South Mary Avenue. The project site is within a developed, urban area of Sunnyvale and is immediately adjacent to other auto repair and auto dealership uses. The surrounding area also has a mix of commercial retail, restaurants, medical and office use, single-family homes, and apartments. The existing building was constructed in 1957 and has been occupied by various auto related businesses including a carwash, auto dealership, and auto body repair.
The proposed project is the demolition of the existing 7,016 square feet auto repair/body shop buildings including a 399 square feet mezzanine, and construction of a new 10,998 square feet auto repair shop building with a 2,231 square feet mezzanine for the Toyota Pre-owned Vehicle Reconditioning Center. The proposed net increase in building area is 3,982 square feet. The project also includes on-site improvements including landscaping and construction of a new solid waste enclosure, and off-site improvements including the widening of a frontage sidewalk. A Special Development Permit is required for new developments in the Precise Plan for El Camino Real area.
