The proposed project includes rezoning of the project site from Multiple-Family Residential(M-17 and M-29) and Single-Family Residential (R-15) to a Planned Unit District (P-1) and approval of a vesting tentative map reconfiguring the current eight parcels into 19 new residential parcels. The proposed project would involve a development plan to allow the demolition of all existing improvements currently present on-site, including buildings, foundations, asphalt, concrete, fence poles, and landscaping. The major project components are as follows:

  • Approximately 237,816 square feet of new residential living area (293,139 total gross building square feet)
  • Removal of approximately 74 trees, relocation of one valley oak tree, and work within the dripline of an additional six trees
  • 92,120 square feet of landscaped areas
  • 278 on-site auto parking spaces
  • Internal street, courts, walkways, and drainage improvements
