Downtown Precise Plan Amendments
The proposed DTPP Plan-Wide Amendments would consist of amendments to the DTPP and the Redwood City General Plan to revise certain DTPP development standards, guidelines and policies, including those regarding permitted or conditionally permitted land uses (including allowing Research and Development Laboratory space as a conditional use); streets and circulation (including pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular circulation; updating the typology of some streets; and potentially eliminating some planned but unbuilt streets); building height and massing (including allowing the development of recreational rooftop structures within existing height limitations); parking; historical resources; and open space. The proposed amendments would also allow for exceptions, at certain sites, to requirements concerning building placement, minimum heights, and stepdown zones. Finally, the amendments would add 80,000 square feet to the maximum office development cap (reserved for small office projects of 20,000 new square feet or less). The City Council will consider making these policy changes in advance of consideration by the City of six so-called “Gatekeeper” development projects to ensure these projects conform to the City’s vision for the development of the Downtown. With the changes, City Council approval would be required for any Large Project requesting a General Plan Amendment; such projects would also negotiate Development Agreements. The SEIR also evaluates a potential future northward extension of the DTPP between El Camino Real and the Caltrain tracks and the potential for total new office development up to 1,167,100 square feet and 830 new residential units in the amended DTPP area.
