The purpose of the Santa Clara Downtown Precise Plan (SCDPP) is to provide guidance for new development within the Downtown (as identified in the City’s General Plan) and to meet the needs of the community. Two development scenarios were created which includes a residential maximum development and an office maximum development. The City’s preferred scenario, which is analyzed in the Environmental Impact Report, is the maximum housing scenario which would consist of up to 1,071 residential units, 531,720 square feet of office space, 197,900 square feet of commercial/retail space, and 44,300 square feet of public space. In addition, the SCDPP proposes to re-establish the street grid, creating 10 city blocks with four types of streets: major, multimodal, pedestrian-oriented, and local Downtown streets. Future development would be required to comply with the form-based code, which includes standards and guidelines associated with building height, setbacks, building use, and building form and design. The SCDPP and form-based code includes maximum building heights allowed for future developments within the SCDPP.
