749 West El Camino Real Mixed-Use Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The project would demolish the existing 1,487 square foot restaurant building, 18,302 square foot bank building, and all associated surface parking and landscaping on-site to construct two new buildings on-site: 1) a two-story, up to 11,500 square foot bank and 2) a six-story, mixed-use building with 299 multi-family residential units (33 of which would be reserved for low- to very-low- income households), up to 11,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial uses, and two levels of underground parking. The commercial square footage would be located adjacent to El Camino Real on the northern portion of the project site. The new bank would be located on the northwest corner of the project site and a public plaza is proposed on El Camino Real between the proposed bank building and mixed-use building’s ground-floor commercial uses. The proposed development would meet Tier 2 development standards per the El Camino Real Precise Plan and have a maximum structure height of up to 75 feet and a floor-area-ratio (FAR) of approximately 3.04 (98 dwelling units per acre [du/ac]). The project would utilize the State Density Bonus Law to exceed the allowed zoning density of 2.3 FAR with a 43.1 percent density bonus as calculated based on Mountain View’s Density Bonus Program Guidelines and Municipal Code Section 36.48.75; therefore, the project would not require a General Plan amendment or rezoning.
