The City received an initial application March 28, 2019, to construct a seven-story residential building with 320 rental units and three-story commercial building with 33,100 square feet of office and 1,608 square feet of neighborhood benefit space. The proposed residential building would contain approximately 311,341 square feet of gross floor area with a floor area ratio of 223 percent. The proposed commercial building would contain approximately 34,708 square feet of gross floor area with a floor area ratio of 25 percent. The proposal includes a request for an increase in height, density and FAR under the bonus level development allowance, which is subject to obtaining a use permit and providing one or more community amenities.
This study session is the first step in discussing the proposed project and will be followed by subsequent Planning Commission meetings.
