Document Description
The project would involve rezoning (through a Zoning Code amendment) six sites fromPublic/Semipublic (PS) and/or Commercial Retail (CR) to Mixed Use (MX) and expanding the Downtown Core (DC) Overlay to include the Intermodal Transportation Center (ITC) site, to allow for greater housing density and more flexible development standards. The project also involves a General Plan amendment for the ITC, Lot 8, Lot 12, and Permit Center and Parking Garage land use designation changes from PS to MX. The project does not involve construction or other physical changes; however, reasonable assumptions for demolition (of paved parking areas and extant buildings), buildout (500 residential units and 125,000 square feet of commercial), building height and massing, and other features at each site. This project is being fully funded by Senate Bill 2 grant funding for the purpose of increasing housing production in the city. The six rezone sites are: (1) Parking Lot 1, Salinas Street between West Alisal Street and West Gabilan Street, mid-block; (2) Parking Lot 5, southwest corner of Monterey Street and East Alisal Street; (3) Parking Lot 8, southeast corner of Lincoln Avenue and West Gabilan Street; (4) Parking Lot 12, northwest corner of Lincoln Avenue and West Gabilan Street; (5) ITC, northwest corner of North Main Street and West Market Street; and (6) Permit Center and Parking Garage, 65 West Alisal Street between Lincoln Avenue and Salinas Street.
