Project Description: The Proposed Project would involve the construction and operation of a new mixed-use development within the eastern portion of the existing Town & Country Shopping Center (Center or Project Site) that is currently developed with retail and commercial uses. The proposed development activities would be limited to the eastern portion of the Center (referred to as the Development Site in the Draft EIR) and would include the demolition of 151,048 square feet of existing retail uses and the construction of a mid-rise, eightstory mixed-use structure with two levels of subterranean parking, for a maximum height of 100 feet. The residential component of the Proposed Project would include up to 331 multi-family dwelling units and 83,994 square feet of newly developed commercial space for a total new floor area of 426,994 square feet. The western portion of the Project Site would remain and is not proposed to be demolished, altered, or developed as part of the Proposed Project. In conjunction with the existing 63,688 square feet of commercial and retail uses to remain, the Project Site would include approximately 147,682 square feet of commercial retail space, for a total of 490,682 square feet of development and a Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 1.5 to 1.
ANTICIPATED SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS:
Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would not result in any significant and unavoidable impacts. All potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
FILE REVIEW AND COMMENTS:
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
The Department of City Planning recognizes the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, and having been identified as an essential City service, continues to work and respond to all inquiries pertaining to our ongoing efforts to process entitlement applications and study updates to our community plans and citywide policies. As a result of the Mayor’s Safer at Home Order issued March 19, 2020, some of the previous means to access materials at libraries are no longer available to all residents or interested parties. To that end, the Department of City Planning will ensure that interested parties seeking information about the Project will have access.
