Document Description
The purpose of the Master Plan is to implement the General Plan and Precise Plan vision for North Bayshore as a vibrant mixed-use district with new residential neighborhoods, open spaces, and mobility options. The proposed Master Plan is largely consistent with the development assumptions in the Precise Plan and certified 2017 SEIR and would allow for the demolition of 68 of the existing 69 buildings (as well as removal of related surface parking lots and landscaping) to construct: -Up to 7,000 residential dwelling units (including 20 percent affordable residential units); -Up to 3,141,264 million square feet of office space (including 1,303,250 square feet of net new office space and 1,838,014 square feet of existing office space to be redeveloped); -18.9 acres of public open space and 12.1 acres of Privately Owned Publicly Accessible (POPA) open space; -Up to 244,000 square feet of retail uses; -Approximately 55,000 square feet of community facilities; -Up to 525 hotel rooms; -Up to six above-ground parking structures; and -As an option, the Master Plan may include private district utility systems with an approximately 130,000 square-foot District Central Plant (DCP) and underground distribution lines that would provide wastewater, recycled water, thermal energy (heating and cooling), electric power via a microgrid, and/or pneumatic waste collection services to the Master Plan area. Implementation of the Master Plan would require the removal of existing trees, including Heritage Trees. The proposed project would plant replacement trees in conformance with the City requirements. The maximum building heights would range from approximately 45 to 160 feet (with certain building elements to exceed the maximum specified height in the Precise Plan, per a variance application). The project would also include back-up power systems to facilitate fire and life safety loads in an emergency, in addition to diesel-powered emergency generators at each building. Parking within the Master Plan area would be provided in surface, podium, and/or below ground parking facilities, as well as within three additional district parking garages. One of the district parking garages is proposed to be constructed on the City-owned Lot C (APN 116-20-043) at the Shoreline Amphitheater, which is currently leased by Live Nation and subleased by Google as part of a shared-parking agreement. Before the City can entertain a long- term lease or sale of Lot C to construct a district parking garage, the City must comply with the State Surplus Land Act. The Master Plan includes a Vesting Tentative Map and a Development Agreement to vest the Master Plan’s development rights over a 30-year period. The primary components of the Master Plan include the following: -Master Plan Subareas -Parks and Open Space -Utilities (including an option for private district utility systems) -Emergency Generators -Green Building and Emissions Reduction Features -Construction Activities and Phasing -Site Access, Circulation, and Parking -Transportation Demand Management -Heritage Trees and Landscaping
