The project will have a total floor area of approx. 97,796 square feet and a Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 9.41:1.The project proposes no vehicle parking spaces, zero long-term bicycle parking spaces, and 14 short-term bicycle parking spaces. There are no trees on-site and one (1) Street Tree, and the project does not propose the removal of any trees. The project is required to provide 54 trees and is proposing 56 on-site trees and two (2) new Street Tree in addition to the one (1) existing Street Tree which will remain. The project assumes a worst-case scenario of removing the existing one (1) street tree, in the event of changes to the right-of-way improvement plans after approval of the environmental clearance. However, this environmental analysis does not authorize the removal of any street trees without prior approval of Urban Forestry, in compliance with LAMC Sections 62.169 and 62.170 and their applicable findings.

21080(b)(1) and Government Code Section 65915
Reasons for Exemption
On August 16, 2023, the City of Los Angeles determined based on the whole of the administrative record that the Project is exempt from CEQA pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 21080(b)(1). The project was found to be exempt as a qualified Streamlined Infill Project that satisfies all of the objective planning standards and is therefore subject to the streamlined ministerial approval process provided under Government Code Section 65915. As a Density Bonus housing project that satisfies all the objective planning standards of Government Code Section 65915, approval of the project is ministerial and therefore statutorily exempt from CEQA and Public Resources Code Section 21080(b)(1). As such, the project is exempt from additional environmental review.
