Document Description
The project would create a new zoning district - Manufacturing, Research and Development (M-RD) – in order to facilitate future development. The M-RD zoning district would permit a variety of uses, including office, industrial and heavy commercial, laboratory, light manufacturing, and research and development (R&D), which would primarily be subject to the permit thresholds of the Mixed-Use Light Industrial (MULI) district. The EIR will evaluate the impact of the rezone and associated general plan amendments, as well as demolition of the existing buildings totaling approximately 298,000 square feet, except for the existing 10,000 square-foot building at 1330 Second Street, which would be adaptively reused, construction of up to 1,000,000 square feet of nonresidential space and 2,000 off-street automobile parking spaces, at a maximum building height of 105 feet.
