Draft Environmental Impact Report

Environmental Case No. State Clearinghouse No.
ENV-2016-1951-EIR 2016101076


Project Address:  732–756 South Figueroa Street, 829 West 8th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017

Community Plan Area:  Central City

Council District:  14—Huizar

Project Description:  The Project proposes to develop a mixed-use project (Project) on a 50,335-square-foot site (1.16 gross acres or 1.07 net acres) located at 744 South Figueroa Street (Project Site) within the Central City Community Plan area of the City of Los Angeles (City).  The Project includes up to 438 residential units, up to 7,500 square feet of commercial retail and restaurant uses, and 522 vehicle parking spaces.  The proposed uses would be located within a new 41-story mixed-use building with four subterranean levels.  Overall, the new building would comprise up to 481,753 square feet of floor area.  To accommodate the Project, the existing surface parking lot, which consists of 221 parking spaces, would be removed.


Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to:  (1) Project and cumulative regional air quality emissions during construction; (2) Cumulative off-site noise during construction; (3) Project and cumulative off-site vibration related to human annoyance during construction; and (4) Project and cumulative traffic intersection levels of service and associated access impacts during operation.  All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
