PROJECT DOCUMENTS: SCEA with Appendices

Project Description: The Sportsmen’s Lodge Mixed-Use Project includes the development of three above-grade low- to mid-rise structures with a common subterranean parking structure on an approximately 5.8-acre site.  The Project would replace the existing Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel and parking areas with 520 residential units, including 78 Very Low-Income affordable units; 18,019 square feet of restaurant uses; 27,926 square feet of retail uses; and 64,151 square feet of residential amenity and accessory space.  The Project would incorporate approximately 66,816 square feet a variety of open space and recreational amenities, including approximately 52,520 square feet of exterior common open space and approximately 14,296 square feet of interior common open space.  Additionally, the Project would include approximately 12,550 square feet of private open space.  Approximately 21,039 square feet of open spaces would be accessible to the public.  The Project would provide 1,385 total vehicular parking spaces and 264 bicycle parking spaces (224 long term and 40 short term), as well as 49 spaces relocated long-term spaces, for a total of 313 bicycle parking spaces.  Upon completion, the Project would result in up to 650,996 square feet of floor area within the Project Site with a maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 2.84:1.

The SCEA herein was previously circulated for public review between July 28, 2022 and August 29, 2022.

This analysis is included as Appendix J.2 of this document. Section5, Item XIII, Noise, of this recirculated SCEA, incorporates the additional information from the Supplemental Noise Analysis, with edits to the noise mitigation measures also incorporated into Section 6.5, Mitigation Monitoring Program, of this document. Additional corrections and additions have also been incorporated throughout this recirculated SCEA.
