Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Neighborhood Commercial/Commercial Neighborhood
Document Description
The proposed project would involve demolition of the existing building on the project site and construction of two new multi-family residential buildings. The proposed buildings would have five stories; the four topmost stories would consist of residential units, with the ground- floor serving as covered parking, residential common areas and utility spaces. The proposed buildings would be connected by footbridges on the third, fourth, and fifth floors of the structures. The proposed buildings would include 84 affordable dwelling units and one manager’s unit. The proposed project would require a General Plan amendment to change the land use designation from Neighborhood Commercial to High Density Residential, and zoning from CN to High-Density Multiple-Family (R4) zoning district. The project applicant requests a 1.19 percent density bonus to 81.73 dwelling units per acre to allow one additional unit beyond the base density of 84 dwelling units allowed under the proposed R4 zoning (85 units total). The project is also within 0.5 miles of a major transit stop and eligible for a 0.5 spaces per unit parking ratio pursuant to the State Density Bonus Law. The density bonus request includes a development standard incentive to provide no personal storage, which is required at 80 square feet or 164 cubic feet per unit in the R4 zoning district.
