Document Description
The project would involve a request for approval of a Development Plan (D21-00011) and Density Bonus (DB21-00005) to allow the construction of 323 residential apartment units; 290 units are proposed as market rate and 33 units are proposed as very low-income affordable. The project would also include 2,365 square feet of commercial space, 1,746 square feet of leasing office space, open space, and amenity areas (Figure 2, Site Plan). The project is subject to State Density Bonus Law (Government Code Section 65915) and local Density Bonus provisions (Section 3032 of the Zoning Ordinance). The proposed development would be composed of six separate mixed-use apartment buildings that would be four and five stories, varying from 45 feet to 62 feet in height. The 7.4-acre (323,650-square-foot) lot would be covered by approximately 104,000 square feet of building footprint. The proposed apartment buildings would be set back from existing residential homes to the southeast by approximately 95 feet to provide privacy and visual relief. Parking would be provided as surface spaces (381 spaces, 39 of which would be individual garage spaces) and as a below-ground garage (145 spaces) (Figure 2). The approvals required for the project include a Development Plan and a Density Bonus application with waivers for development standards involving setbacks, floor area ratio, building height, usable open space per unit, width of certain parking stalls, and retaining wall height and material. Project landscaping and greenspace would cover approximately 96,000 square feet. The interior of the project site would include a recreation area, fitness center, outdoor pool, and barbeque area. Access to the project would be provided via Bobier Drive along the northeast corner of the site. The proposed development would connect to an existing sidewalk system along Bobier Drive, providing pedestrian access to and from the project site. The project would require grading work that involves approximately 20,500 cubic yards of cut soil and approximately 63,700 cubic yards of filled soil. The project would connect to existing water and sewer facilities in the surrounding area.
