NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project site is a UCLA property located at 5975 West Olympic Boulevard in the City of Los Angeles. The site is developed with an eight-story, open air parking structure with a capacity of 732 standard, compact, and ADA-accessible vehicle stalls. The project involves parking structure seismic improvements, mandatory code corrections triggered by the seismic work, and repair and restoration of impacted building finishes. The parking structure has a current University of California (UC) Seismic Performance Rating of V; upon completion of the work, the parking structure will achieve a Seismic Performance Rating of IV or better to bring the facility into compliance with the UC Seismic Safety Policy. The parking structure will remain operational during construction. These seismic upgrades are considered a stand-alone project with independent utility, separate from proposed seismic upgrades and tenant improvements at the adjacent medical office building as well as planned renovations at the nearby hospital, each of which have their own respective planning, design, funding, project approval, construction and timeline components.
