Document Description
The Project proposes a COMMUNITY PLAN AMENDMENT (CPA), PLANNED DEVELOPMENT PERMIT (PDP), SITE DEVELOPMENT PERMIT (SDP), TENTATIVE MAP (TM), and STREET VACATION for redevelopment of a 33.5-acre site in which 7-acres would remain undeveloped open-space, and 26.5-acres would be developed. The Project proposes to demolish 199,735-square-feet of existing commercial buildings and construct a five-building campus (Buildings A-E) to include scientific R&D, laboratory, technology, and office uses, with supporting parking structures and surface parking areas, recreational facilities, amenities, and landscaping. Buildings A through E would have a gross floor area (GFA) of approximately one million-square-feet, with additional area consisting of balcony and roof deck space. Buildings A, B and C would be 6 levels, Building D would be 5 levels, and Building E would be 2 levels. The Project would also include approximately 2,500 parking spaces, in surface parking areas and parking structures. The existing terminus to Towne Centre Drive within the Project site would be removed and the intersection of Towne Centre Drive and Westerra Court would be modified. The Project site is currently associated with the following addresses: 9855/9865/9875/9885 Towne Centre Drive. The Project site is designated Industrial Employment pursuant to the San Diego General Plan and is designated Scientific Research within Area 11 of the University Community Plan and is zoned Industrial Park (IP-1-1) and Residential Single Unit (RS-1-7). The portion of the site that is zoned RS-1-7 would remain undeveloped. The project is subject to the Airport Influence Area Overlay, Coastal Overlay Zone, Community Plan Implementation Zone -A, Fire Brush Zones, Very High Fire Severity Zone, Parking Impact Overlay Zone, Prime Industrial Lands, Transit Priority Area, and FAA Part 77 Notification Area. The project is also located in the Accident Potential Zone II (APZ II), and Transition Zone (TZ) of the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP).
