North Parcel: Existing General Plan designation of Mixed-Use Horizontal (MU-H1) and Zoning designation of Mixed-Use-Mariners’ Mile
South Parcel: Existing General Plan designation of Mixed-Use Water 1 (MU-W1) and Zoning designation of Mixed-Use Water Related (MU-W1)
The MX3 Ventures – MSM Global (Project Applicant) proposes to redevelop the project site and to construct a mixed-use development along West Coast Highway between Newport Boulevard and Dover Drive. The Project would consist of residential dwelling units (including affordable units), retail/restaurant, and office uses, as well as parking and related improvements. The proposed housing development project requests a density bonus in exchange for the inclusion of affordable dwelling units.
The project includes 198 dwelling units consisting of 181 apartments and 17 condominiums, and approximately 63,000 square feet of commercial floor area. The project also includes a new publicly accessible plaza and boardwalk along the waterfront, and surface, structured, and subterranean parking spaces. The existing structures at 2241 West Coast Highway (Amaree’s building) and 2244 West Coast Highway (office building) would remain, while other structures will be demolished as part of the project. No General Plan Amendment or Zone Change would be required to approve the Project, as the proposed development would be consistent with the existing General Plan designation of Mixed-Use Horizontal (MU-H1) and Zoning designation of Mixed-Use-Mariners’ Mile (MU-MM) for the North Parcel, and General Plan designation of Mixed-Use Water 1 (MU-W1) and Zoning designation of Mixed-Use Water Related (MU-W1) for the South Parcel. The Project is within the Coastal Zone and therefore, would be subject to the City’s Local Coastal Program (LCP) and California Coastal Commission (CCC) regulations. Development of the Project would also require a number of discretionary approvals from the City of Newport Beach:
