On March 10, 2022, the Planning Division received an Environmental and Design Review application for a proposed new seven story mixed use building at 1515 4th Street that would include 191 residential units and 4,000 square feet of commercial space.
On June 16, 2022, the Planning Division received a letter from the applicant intending to withdraw their Environmental and Design Review application and instead pursue a Senate Bill 35 (“SB 35”) process. SB 35 took effect on January 1, 2018, and it requires that development applications meeting certain criteria must be subject to a streamlined, ministerial approval process.
On December 29, 2022, the Planning Division received a letter from the applicant withdrawing their SB 35 letter of intent and instead continuing with a formal Environmental and Design Review application process. The applicant also provided revised plans that reduced the number of residential units to 162 units, while maintaining seven stories and 4,000 square feet of commercial space.
This application is currently considered incomplete and needs to address a number of items before a public hearing can be scheduled for the project.
