Document Description
A request to allow for the demolition of all site improvements to redevelop an existing 2.71-acre commercial site with 49, two and three-story single family small lot homes (17 paired and 15 detached), open space recreation areas, guest parking, and related site improvements. The unit mix includes three- and four-bedroom floor plans ranging from approximately 1,701 to 2,004 square feet and the incorporation of roof decks on all three- story units with a maximum building height of 35 feet. The project proposes 12, two-story detached units along the north property boundary, adjacent to existing single-family homes. To allow for small lot subdivision residential development, the Project proposes a General Plan Amendment to change the land use designation from General Commercial (GC) to Medium Density Residential (MDR) and a Zone Change to change the zoning designation from Commercial Professional (C-P) to Multiple-Family Residential (R-3), and application of Small Lot Subdivision Development Standards (Orange Municipal Code Section 17.14.270).
