Document Description
The Project proposes the renovation of the existing 558,918-square-foot Los Angeles Times Olympic Printing Plant (referred to as Plant or Building 1 under the Project) and a 23,005-square-foot vehicular maintenance building (referred to as maintenance building or Building 2 under the Project) and the construction of approximately 249,790 square feet of floor area comprised of new studio uses, support/office uses, a shops/office building, and three guard booths. Three ancillary structures would be removed as part of the Project. Upon completion, the Project would provide 832,190 square feet of floor area with a floor area ratio (FAR) of up to 0.74:1. The uses within the Project Site would be supported by 1,522 vehicle parking spaces within a nine-level, above-ground parking structure (Building 8) and 143 surface vehicle parking spaces. The Project would also provide 58 bicycle parking spaces (25 short-term and 33 long-term). Regarding the anticipated haul route for the Project, loaded haul trucks would exit the Project gate at Hunter Street/Lawrence Street, make a left turn onto Lawrence Street, left onto Olympic Boulevard, and right onto I-10 Freeway. An alternate route for haul trucks leaving the Project Site would consist of the following: trucks exit from the Project’s main gate, left onto 8th Street, left onto Alameda Street, left onto Olympic Boulevard and right onto the I-10 Freeway. Empty haul trucks coming to the Project Site would travel westbound on I-10 Freeway, exit 14th Street, right onto Alameda Street heading north, right onto 8th Street and right onto Project Site. Construction would require approximately 4,250 cubic yards of total soil export and no soil import
