Parker Flats Apartments Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project would involve conversion of an existing abandoned military nursing barracks on the former Fort Ord into residential apartments with 42 dwelling units, including two one-bedroom units, 29 two-bedroom units, and 11 three-bedroom units. The project site is located at 4386 – 4387 Parker Flats Cut Off Road in the City of Seaside, within the former Fort Ord. Project activities would be contained entirely within the footprint of two existing three-story vacant military nursing barracks buildings, an existing paved parking lot, and an existing paved driveway. The project site is located on a 4.9-acre parcel. The proposed project would involve the renovation the two existing buildings (Buildings A and B) on the project site to convert them into residential apartments. Building A is the southern building, oriented in a northwest-southeast direction near the existing parking area; Building B is the northern building, oriented in a northeast-southwest direction. The two buildings meet to form an “L” shape, as shown in Figure 2. The existing parking lot is located southwest of Building A. Building A has an existing footprint of 19,909 square feet (sf) and Building B has an existing footprint of 19,380 sf. Building A would house 21 dwelling units, including two one-bedroom, 14 two-bedroom and five three-bedroom units, as well as the laundromat and administration offices. Building B would house 21 dwelling units, including 15 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom units. Twenty percent, or nine units, would be deed restricted as affordable, including three very low income, three low income, and three moderate income units. The remaining 33 units would be affordable by design, given the units are physically smaller and more efficiently designed, and therefore would be expected to be below market value. The existing footprint of both buildings would be unchanged as a result of the project, other than the addition of a 157 square foot electrical room. The project characteristics, including building footprint, floor area, unit count, and parking is provided Table 1.
