The Violet Street Creative Office Campus Project (Project) is a new creative office campus with uses spanning existing and proposed buildings on an approximately 273,930 square-foot (6.3-acre) site. Construction of the Project would require the demolition of the existing 25,798 square feet of warehouse uses, 9,940 square feet of office uses, and associated surface parking, all located on the southwest portion of the Project Site. The remainder of the Project Site is developed with the existing 244,795-square-foot Warner Music Group building (originally the Ford Factory building) and a five-story parking garage (including a roof-top level), which would be retained as part of the Project. The Project proposes a 13-story, approximately 450,599-square-foot building featuring 435,100 square feet of office uses, 15,499 square feet of ground floor retail and/or restaurant uses, and 1,264 automobile parking spaces located in a seven-story parking garage, comprised of one at-grade, two abovegrade, and four below-grade levels. While not required, approximately 74,018 square feet of outdoor areas would be provided. The Applicant is requesting a General Plan Amendment to designate a portion of the Project Site’s land use from Heavy Manufacturing to Regional Center Commercial and a Vesting Zone Change from the M3-1-RIO zone to C2-2-RIO zone. If approved, the Project’s maximum floor area ratio (FAR) would be 6:1, permitting 661,800 square feet of development. Additionally, the Applicant is requesting a Floor Area Averaging Conditional Use Permit which would allow the remaining 211,201 square feet of floor area to be averaged across the entire Project Site as a Unified Development. Accordingly, the Project includes a Future Campus Expansion Phase which encompasses a potential expansion opportunity for additional office use to be developed within the Project Site at the corner of Violet Street and Santa Fe Avenue. Construction of the Future Campus Expansion Phase would require the demolition of an existing 21,880-square foot building containing office uses. For purposes of this analysis, this Future Campus Expansion Phase would be comprised of office and restaurant uses, but this portion of the Project Site could be utilized for any uses consistent with the existing M3-1-RIO zone.
