Document Description
Old Ranch Development LLC (Project Applicant) proposes the development of new facilities including: a 116-unit, 4-level (188,500 square feet [SF]) multi-family housing development; a 51-unit 3-level senior housing complex including a 25,340-SF medical office facility in the ground floor; a 150-key overnight accommodation (109,015 SF), including a bar and lounge and a specialty restaurant; a relocated maintenance facility (2,650 SF); and a 3-level parking structure with 591 stalls (226,441 SF), including 26 valet spaces and 36 electric vehicle (EV) parking spaces, with 4 tennis courts on the top level. A total of 1,042 parking spaces are proposed. The Project also entails a new clubhouse pool and associated structures (21,000 SF) abutting the existing clubhouse. The Project would include new connecting drive aisles/streets, surface parking areas, and landscaping in addition to a reconfigured driving range from two-way to a two-level one-way. Other improvements related to recontouring of the golf course and changes pertaining to the flood plain easement and drainage reconfiguration would also occur. Access to the ORCC Specific Plan area is provided by Seal Beach Boulevard and Lampson Avenue (Major and Secondary streets, respectively), through the City of Seal Beach and the City of Los Alamitos. Regional access to the site can be provided by San Diego Freeway (405), San Gabriel Freeway (605), Garden Grove Freeway (22), and Pacific Coast Highway (1). Internal circulation is currently provided by an entrance off Lampson Avenue at Basswood Drive for the existing Project site. The entry drive off Lampson and the drop-off/valet will be modified. Another entrance off Lampson at Old Ranch Plaza will provide access to the public driving range and maintenance facilities, and an existing private drive will connect the maintenance facility to the driving range. Emergency access will be provided by the existing emergency access only, just east of Seal Beach Boulevard. A new driveway is proposed off Seal Beach Boulevard, which will provide access to the proposed multi-family housing. Development of the Project would require the following discretionary approvals from the City of Seal Beach: Adoption of the ORCC Specific Plan; Certification of the ORCC Specific Plan EIR; Approval of the Development Agreement; Public Street Tree Removal Approval, including a Eucalyptus Tree Permit; and Zoning Code Amendment (Height); Design Review; and Vesting Tentative Tract Map or Tract Map Approval.
