Project Description: The Proposed Project (“The City Market of Los Angeles”) seeks to redevelop an approximately 10-acre project site across portions of four blocks in Downtown Los Angeles. The Project Site is currently developed with approximately 115,249 square feet (sf) of improved structural floor area, of which only 59,000 sf is currently occupied and operational with warehouse, wholesale, office, bank, and storage land uses, and associated surface parking lots. The Proposed Project seeks to demolish up to approximately 91,729 sf of the existing structures on the Project Site and redevelop the Project Site with a mixed-use project with a maximum of approximately 1,719,658 square feet of total developed floor area. The Proposed Project is anticipated to be built out over a proposed 25-year period and would include the construction of approximately 945 multiple residential dwelling units, a maximum of 210 hotel rooms, approximately 294,641 sf of commercial (including medical and general office) and manufacturing uses, approximately 224,862 sf of retail floor area (including restaurants, bars, event space, wholesale uses, and a cinema with approximately 744 seats), and approximately 312,112 sf of corporate/educational campus floor area. The Project would include approximately 3,670 parking spaces in above and below grade parking structures. Proposed building heights would range from three stories to 38 stories (max. 435 feet above grade). The total project net square footage of development would not exceed an FAR of 4.10:1 or 1,719,658 sf.
The Proposed Project would require the following discretionary actions: (1) Development Agreement in exchange for community benefits; (2) General Plan Amendment to change the land use designation from Light Manufacturing (“LM”) to Community Commercial (“CC”) including an amendment to General Plan Footnote No. 2 to remove the D Limitation from height district 2-D in order to allow for a greater than 3:1 FAR; (3) Zone Change from the M2-2D Zone to the C2-2 Zone; (4) Height District Change from -2D to -2 to remove the D Development limitation of a 3:1 FAR; (5) a Supplemental Use District (SUD) for advertising signage; (6) A CUP for Floor Area Averaging in a unified mixed-use development not to exceed 4.10:1 FAR, however, a maximum FAR of 4.43:1 will be permitted on Block 1, 3.40:1 FAR on Block 2, 2.53:1 FAR on Block 3 and 7.19:1 of Block 4; (7) Site Plan Review findings be made for a major unified development and a project adding more than 49 dwelling units, (8) approval of a variance to provide 160 trees in lieu of the 236 required; (9) Approval of a Master Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the on-site and off-site sales of alcoholic beverages in retail establishments, bars, and restaurants; (10) an Airspace Tentative Tract Map to permit the merger and re-subdivision of the land and the creation of four ground lots containing 14 air space lots, including the vacation of the alley located within Block 2 which is surrounded by San Pedro Street, San Julian Street, 12th Street, and 11th Street, merge that portion of San Julian Street (approx. 2 feet) which is over dedicated, (11) a reduction from the Advisory Agency’s Parking Policy to allow parking to be calculated based on the LAMC; (12) demolition, grading, excavation, and foundation permits; and (13) haul route approval.
