Document Description
The project site contains an existing vacant two-story office building, a surface parking lot, and 19 trees. The project proposes to demolish the existing office building and redevelop the site with a five-story multi-family development, consisting of 106 affordable units and two managers' units (a total of 108 units). Vehicle parking would be provided on a surface parking lot on the western edge of the project site and within the ground level parking garage. The development would include up to 82 vehicular parking spaces. The project would remove all 19 existing on-site trees. New landscaping, including 82 new trees, would be planted throughout the site as part of the proposed project. The project includes a complete street section with a landscape planter between the street frontages and a new sidewalk. The project, as proposed, includes a General Plan Amendment (GPA) and rezoning to allow for the proposed project. The GPA would include a change in the site’s General Plan land use designation from Community Commercial to High-Density Residential. The site would be rezoned from OG - General Office to Planned Development to allow for the proposed residential use.
