NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project is for the demolition of existing structures and the construction of a new six-story, 69-foot 6-inch tall mixed-use development with 60 dwelling units, consisting of 59 Low-Income units, and 1 market rate manager’s unit. The project will have a total floor area of approximately 35,231 square feet of non-residential Floor Area and 36,000 square feet of Residential Floor Area for total of 71,231 square feet of Floor Area and a Floor Area Ratio of 2:1. The project proposes 74 vehicle parking spaces, 58 long term bicycle parking spaces, and 11 short term bicycle parking spaces. The project proposes the removal of 1 Street Tree in public-right-of-way. The project is proposing 28 new on-site trees, consisting of 10 trees on the ground floor, 6 trees on the third floor, and 12 trees at the roof level. The project assumes a worst-case scenario of removing all street trees, 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.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
21080(b)(1) and Government Code Section 65915
Reasons for Exemption
On November 1, 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.
