Document Description
Lennar Homes of California, LLC (applicant) proposes the development of a 149-home residential townhome community on an approximately 6.88-acre site in the City of Encinitas. The project site is identified as one of the 15 sites included in the City of Encinitas General Plan Housing Element Update, adopted by the City on March 13, 2019. On October 8, 2019, the State Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) certified the 2013-2021 Housing Element. On April 17, 2021, the City adopted the 2021-2029 Housing Element. Pursuant to the Encinitas Municipal Code, that a minimum of 134 units could be accommodated on the subject site, at a density of 25 units per net acre. The community would consist of 52 one-bedroom homes, 37 two-bedroom homes, and 60 three-bedroom homes for a total of 149 residential homes, which would be built within 16 separate three-story residential buildings. Of the 149 residential homes, 134 would be market-rate homes and 15 would be “very low” (50 percent of area median income) affordable residential homes. A total of 271 parking spaces are planned, including private garage spaces and outdoor shared parking. Proposed amenities include a pool, spa, pool house, and lounge seating. An approximately 0.25-acre area of Plato Place and 0.71 acres along Piraeus Street, adjacent to the project boundary, would be vacated to accommodate the development. Finally, APN 216-110-35-00, immediately north of the project site, would be preserved in perpetuity and left in its current undeveloped state to mitigate the project’s biological impacts. The site is not included on any list under Government Code section 65962.5.
