NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The Project Sponsor is seeking approval of bonus-level development, pursuant to provisions of the City Zoning Ordinance applicable to the Life Sciences (LS) zoning district, in order to permit construction of an approximately 131,825 gsf building for R&D and commercial uses as well as surface parking lots. Under the Proposed Project, the four existing buildings at 1105, 1135, and 1165 O’Brien Drive and 1 Casey Court would be demolished. The Proposed Project would involve construction of a new five-story building with an area of approximately 131,825 gsf that would include R&D uses, office uses associated with the primary R&D use, a 500 sf chemical storage area associated with the primary R&D use, and ground-floor commercial space. The Proposed Project would have a maximum height of approximately 100.8 feet and a combined FAR of 1.24, or 124 percent. Across the Project site, the average building height would be approximately 60.6 feet. Furthermore, because the Project Sponsor is proposing bonus-level development, the City Zoning Ordinance requires the Project Sponsor to provide community amenities in exchange for bonus level development.
