Development Project Description:
The Project proposes a Specific Plan (proposed density is approximately 18 units per acre), General Plan Amendment, Zone Change, and Vesting Tentative Tract Map for the subdivision, construction, and operation of a 1,135-unit residential development.  The Project's residential units would be comprised of single-family, duplex, townhome, flat, and apartment units ranging in size from 600 to approximately 2,800 square feet, within buildings constructed over and/or adjacent to residential parking garages.  Up to 392 of the 1,135 units may be rental units.  The Project would also provide an access road from Western Avenue to the off-site, private Mary Star of the Sea High School.  The Project site is approximately 61.5 acres.  The Project would incorporate large internal open space and recreational areas, including an approximately 2.8-acre park, 1.3-acre community clubhouse and pool/recreation area and an approximately 0.7-acre open space and trail network.  Additional recreational amenities would be distributed throughout the site.  The Project would involve the demolition and removal of all existing improvements on the site, which include 245 vacant residential units, a 2,161-square foot community center, and a 3,454-square foot retail convenience facility which were constructed in approximately 1962 by the U.S. Navy for the purpose of housing and accommodating personnel stationed at the Long Beach Naval Shipyard.  The site (formerly known as “San Pedro Housing”) was closed in the late 1990s.
