The project is the approval of a Development Agreement (DA) over a 30-year period to allow development implementation of the North Bayshore Master Plan, which 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 15 percent affordable residential units); • Up to 3,117,931 million square feet of office space (including 1,303,250 square feet of net new office space and 1,814,681 square feet of existing office space to be redeveloped); • 14.8 acres of public open space and 11.3 acres of Privately Owned Publicly Accessible (POPA) open space; • 233,990 square feet of retail uses; • Up to of 55,000 square feet of community facilities; • Up to 525 hotel rooms; • A 2,000 square foot Police Operations Station; • Up to six above-ground parking structures; and • As an option, a private district utility system with an approximately 130,000 square-foot District Central Plant DCP and underground distribution/collection lines to serve the buildings within the Master Plan with thermal energy (heating and cooling), electric power via a microgrid, and/or pneumatic waste collection and an option for wastewater and recycled water based upon City concurrence. 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). 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 Vesting Tentative Map will create 58 new parcels, including 27 parcels for residential buildings with up to 7,000 residential condominium units, 360 commercial condominium units, and 526 vertical subdivision lot within the Master Plan area. 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 The Vesting Tentative Map, North Bayshore Master Plan, vacation of public street and service easements, and option to lease Lot C were previously approved by the City on June 13, 2023 and a Notice of Determination for those approvals was posted on June 15, 2023
