2 story commercial structure, surface parking
Document Description
The Project consists of the removal of an existing three-story office building, the “Felix Chevrolet Building”, identified as a potentially eligible historic resource, and surface parking lot, for the construction of a new 40-story high-rise mixed-use building with up to 312 residential units (approximately 323,529 square feet of residential floor area), approximately 7,100 square feet of retail/restaurant uses, a ground-floor public plaza, residential open space amenities, and three subterranean and six podium levels (above the ground floor) of parking, on a 25,433 square foot lot. The Project would excavate to a maximum depth of 40 feet below the existing ground surface, and result in the export of approximately 48,000 cubic yards of soil. All vehicular access would be provided via two driveways along an adjacent north-south alley located mid-block between Hope Street and Grand Avenue, on the west side of the Project Site. The Project would have a maximum height of up to 461 feet, and the proposed floor area ratio (FAR) would be approximately 13:1. The Project’s total floor area would be approximately 330,629 square feet.
