The 10±-acre subject site is located on the southern side of Via Vail, between Monterey Avenue and Key Largo Avenue in Rancho Mirage. The subject property is located on the northeastern portion of a larger parcel of land that measures ±52 acres in size. The larger parcel is a City-owned property known as the Monterey and Dinah Shore Land Holding and is intended for future single- and multi-family housing for very low- and low-income earning households. The proposed Project, Via Vail Apartments, is an affordable housing development. The site will consist of fifteen (15) two-story apartment buildings for a total of 236 dwelling units. All of the dwelling units except the managers’ units are designated for affordable housing. Of the 236 dwelling units, 100 units will be one-bedroom apartments, 62 units will be two-bedroom apartments, and 74 units will be three-bedroom apartments. The proposed Project will have a density capacity of approximately 24 dwelling units/acre.
