Document Description
The project site's proposed development area falls within the newly created DA 5 for Mixed-Use purposes. DA 5 is estimated at 16.2 acres, resulting In DA 2 to be reduced from 48 acres to 31.8 acres in size. The development area is limited to DA 5, which includes the following APNs: 354-451-19 and -32. The exterior boundaries of the Specific Plan area would not change. The proposed development would demolish the existing ·approximately 62,676 square foot theater and, in its place, allow for the development of a 447-unit multi-family rental residential community. Of the existing theater's square footage, approximately 13,310 square feet of commercial use will be retained In DA 2 for future development. The existing retail within DA 5 includes the following uses that would remain as part of the proposed project: 6,475 square feet of restaurant, 9,200 square feet of office, 38,160 square feet of fitness/gym, 13,276 square feet of tutor/retail space, and 11,033 square feet of medical office building. Thus, the remaining commercial buildings would have a floor area ratio (FAR) of approximately 0.11, which is within the allowed FAR for DA S's proposed Mixed-Use Medium land use designation, which allows a FAR up to 0.35. The proposed multi-family rental residential community would consist of a four-story multi-family residential building wrapped around a five-level parking structure with one subterranean level. Project amenities would include a clubhouse, swimming pools, courtyards, a fitness center, a leasing/mail area, and common open space. The proposed multi-family rental residential community would have four different unit types (1.e., studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom) with private patio or balcony areas. All units would be single-story.
