Project Description

Sequential Lot Line Adjustment, Coastal Permit, Historic and Non-Residential Demolition Authorization Permits, Design Permit, Tentative Map, Special Use Permit, Administrative Use Permit, Revocable License for Outdoor Extension Area, Heritage Tree Removal Permit, and Street Tree Removal to remove one street tree and two heritage trees, to combine five parcels, demolish two historic commercial buildings including one of which is listed on the City's Historic Building Survey, and construct a seven-story, mixed-use building with 175 residential condos (15 of which will be affordable to incomes at 50% AMI, 5 at 80% AMI) and 11,498 square feet of ground floor and levee front commercial space on property located within the CBD/CZ-O/FP-O zone district and within the Front Street/Riverfront subarea of the Downtown Plan. The project requires approval of a Section 408 Permit from the US Army Corps of Engineers to allow for the placement of fill between the levee and the proposed building and to allow for the development of an outdoor extension area adjacent to the Riverway path.

This project requires review by the Historic Preservation Commission and the Planning Commission, who will provide recommendations to the City Council for final action.
