The site at 255 E. Imperial Hwy has a General Plan Land Use designation of Office/Financial Commercial and is zoned Commercial, Administrative and Professional Office.
The project location is at 255 E. Imperial Hwy., commonly known as the Gaslight Square. The Gaslight Square is currently developed with five existing commercial buildings, totaling 23,558 square feet. The project proposes to retain two of the existing five buildings that are currently used for medical uses. The remaining three commercial buildings totaling 18,286 square feet would be demolished to facilitate the construction of a 2,000 square foot drive-through restaurant with an outdoor seating area and a 6,000 square foot commercial building consisting of 2,400 square feet of restaurant and 3,600 square feet of medical or retail space (“Project”). The drive-through restaurant building would be located on the southeast portion of the site and could accommodate 12 vehicles within the drive-through. The restaurant and retail/medical building would be located at the southwest portion of the site. New landscape is proposed throughout the site featuring new trees and planters. The project would also reconfigure the existing parking lot and proposes 92 parking spaces on-site and 12 parking space off-site, for a total of 104 spaces. As proposed the new buildings architectural style is modern with a variety of exterior material including wood siding, concrete, smooth stucco, brick and aluminum.
