Document Description
The 13.4-acre project site is currently vacant and is located at 100 Manabe Ow Road (APN 018-711-38) at the southwest corner of the intersection of Manabe Ow Road and Ohlone Parkway in the southwest portion of the City. The project proposes to construct a rectangular shaped one-story industrial warehouse structure totaling 175,760 square feet, which includes 10,000 square feet of office space half of which is proposed to be located on an interior mezzanine level. The Manabe Ow Road frontage area would be landscaped and includes two stormwater retention/detention basins. In addition to the primary development site, the project also includes the stockpiling of fill soil and use of an access route on a separate vacant property located directly east of the development site on the east side of Ohlone Parkway. The project lies within the boundaries of the existing Manabe Ow Business Park and is therefore subject to conformance with the provisions of the Manabe Ow Business Park Specific Plan. The future tenant and thus specific use of the building is speculative at this time, but the proposed warehouse is anticipated to function as a distribution facility that operates 24 hours per day, Monday through Sunday (7 days per week). Future uses could include warehousing/storage for dry goods, truck trailer/container storage, or other uses permitted by the Specific Plan. The proposed building has space for 41 truck docks, located at the rear of the building. The project includes a Condition of Approval that only allows nine (9) dock packages (the kits containing the doors that allow the docks to be utilized) to be installed with the initial construction of the building. Additional dock packages may be added for the future building tenant(s), however, a Condition of Approval states that any future proposal to increase the number of dock doors would require additional permitting and subsequent CEQA review.
