Currently Proposed Project
Project No.: UP21-006 and ED21-022
Previously Approved Project No.: ED17-090, UP17-030
The previously approved project was a four-story assisted living facility building with 77 assisted living bedrooms or suites (studio and one-bedroom unit layouts) and 88 beds over 40 garage parking spaces. The project was approved with one floor of memory care services.
Proposed amendment of the approved project to allow a requested height bonus. Project is requesting a 11’ 2” height bonus where a maximum 12’ height bonus is allowed by the General Plan and Zoning Ordinance. The proposed height would increase from 36’ to 47’ 2”. The number of rooms would increase from 77 suites to 103 suites. The additional height would allow the memory care services to expand from one floor to two. No other design changes or modifications are proposed.
On August 3, 2021, the Design Review Board will continue their review of the proposed increase in building height and suite count. Revisions to the design include greater articulation, including stepping back the proposed upper floor and returning the rooftop deck to the project. Design changes have resulted in the reduction of the number of proposed suites from 106 to 103.
On June 8, 2021, the Design Review Board reviewed the proposed increase in building height and suite count. At that their meeting, the Design Review Board continuance their review to allow the applicant an opportunity to revise the building design to provide architectural ‘integration’ between the proposed height bonus and the approved Mission Revival architecture of the building. The Design Review Board recommended the applicant explore greater articulation including, but not limited to, stepping back the proposed upper floor.
On July 10, 2018, the Planning Commission with the recommendation of the Design Review Board approved the project with conditions. One of the conditions require the project to return to the Design Review Board for review of final details on landscaping, exterior lighting and outdoor terrace finishes. No date has been identified for this subsequent review by the Design Review Board. Key Planning Documents:
