Project Description: The 2800 Casitas Avenue Project (“proposed Project”), formerly referred to as the Bow Tie Yard Lofts Project, would involve the demolition of an existing 117,000-square-foot manufacturing/ warehouse/production building on the approximately 5.7-acre (248,190 square feet) Project Site. The Project would construct a new mixed-use development, consisting of five buildings with up to 419 multi-family residential units, up to 64,000 square feet of commercial space, and a multi-story parking structure. Commercial uses on-site would include a mix of restaurant uses, office space, and a rooftop urban farm/greenhouse. The Project’s residential and commercial uses would comprise up to 487,872 square feet of total floor area. The proposed residential units would include a combination of 119 studios, 220 one-bedroom units, and 80 two-bedroom units in four buildings ranging from five to six stories with a maximum height of 85 feet above grade. Eleven percent of the base-density residential units (approximately 35 units) would be reserved as Very Low-Income Units. A seven-story (85-foot high) parking garage on the northwest end of the Project Site would provide 720 on-site parking spaces on levels one through six. The seventh level of the parking structure would include an urban farm/greenhouse. Open space areas and recreational amenities would include approximately 58,176 square feet.
