The proposed project would involve tenant improvements for a seafood market by Driscoll Marina (Tenant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve the following improvements to approximately 1,868 square feet of existing building space for a seafood market: removal of existing door and window frames, wood-framed wall, interior and exterior finishes, shower stall, and kitchen and washroom appliances; installation of new windows, interior and exterior doors, walls, partitioning, ceiling and floor finishes, restroom facilities, HVAC equipment, kitchen appliances including walk-in refrigerator/freezer/cooler, ice machine, water heater, sinks, cabinets, shelving units, work tables, and sales counters. A new sublease for operation of the seafood market would need to be approved after construction of the proposed improvements. Although the improvements would result in a negligible expansion of use within existing building space, the proposed use of a seafood market would support and be consistent with the existing nearby commercial fishing uses and would not impact their operations. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to commence at the start of 2021 and would take approximately six (6) months to complete with ongoing modifications and maintenance as needed.
Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Tenant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
