Document Description
The project proposes to demolish the three existing commercial and industrial buildings (a total of approximately 90,631 square feet), construct two Research and Development buildings (a total of approximately 228,081 square feet) and a five-level above grade parking structure, and develop open space to include landscaping and a sports court. A portion of the open space would be publicly accessible. The Project would be developed in two phases. A lot line adjustment and lot merger are proposed to merge the existing three parcels that comprise the Project site into a single parcel and relocate the boundary between the Project site and the adjacent parcel to accommodate the proposed site layout and internal vehicular circulation.
