Document Description
Project is for the construction of a seven-story, 81-foot tall, apartment building with 13 units for Low-Income Households and 32 market rate units for a total of forty-five (45) units. The project will have a total floor area of 35,008 square feet and Floor Area Ratio (“FAR”) of 5:1. The project proposes to provide 34 vehicle parking spaces, 40 long-term and 4 short-term bicycle parking spaces located on the ground and subterranean floors. The project will also provide a total of 4,750 square feet of open space at the rear yard, roof level, and second floor recreation room, and 720 square feet of landscape area. The project proposes the planting of 12 trees on-site. As there are no approved right-of-way improvement plans, the project considered will assume the worst-case scenario of removal of all street trees. However, this analysis gives no rights to the applicant to remove any street tree. No street trees may be removed without prior approval of Urban Forestry based on compliance with LAMC Section 62.169 and 62.170 and applicable findings. The project will be requesting a Haul Route of approximately 5,200 cu. ft.

Reasons for Exemption
The project is a qualified Streamlined Infill Project and satisfies all of the objective planning standards and is therefore subject to the streamlined ministerial approval process provided under Government Code Section 65913.4. As a Density Bonus housing project that satisfies all the objective planning standards of Government Code Section 65913.4, approval of the project is ministerial and therefore statutorily exempt from the CEQA and Public Resources Code Section 21080(b)(1). As such, the project is exempt from additional environmental review.
