Multiple-Family Residential (R-M), General Commercial (C-3), Commercial-Manufacturing (C-M), and PD-PS (Planned Development with Performance Standards)
The proposed Project is the North Paramount Gateway Specific Plan, which replaces two existing specific plans within the Project site—the Clearwater North Specific Plan and the Howe/Orizaba Specific Plan, both adopted by the City of Paramount in 1987. The intent of the Project is to combine the two specific plan areas into a single specific plan, slightly expand the plan area to incorporate additional key parcels along Paramount Boulevard, and develop a plan that provides long-term reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and vehicle miles traveled, supports sustainability efforts, promotes community health and well-being, and strengthens the economic vitality of businesses and individuals.
The Project involves the rezoning of 279 acres from a mix of Multiple-Family Residential (R-M), General Commercial (C-3), Commercial-Manufacturing (C-M), and PD-PS (Planned Development with Performance Standards) to Multiple-Family Residential, Medium Density (R-M), Multiple-Family Residential, High Density (R-M-HD), Mixed-Use, Medium Density (MU-1), and Mixed-Use, High Density (MU-2). The maximum residential density will increase from the current 22 dwelling units/acre (du/acre) to 30 du/ac in the R-M and MU-1 zones and 40 du/ac in the R-M-HD and MU-2 zones. Maximum heights and floor area ratios will generally remain consistent with current standards, with a 45-foot height limit and 2.0 FAR maximum for most projects.
The projected net change in development within the Specific Plan area is 5,044 residential units and 31,171 square feet of retail and office space, which would be in addition to the existing 1,707 residential units and 159,829 square feet of retail and office space.
