PROJECT DESCRIPTION

 

The proposed project is the development of a two-story single-family residence (approximately 3,826 square feet of residential floor area), including a stacked car-lift four-car garage, on a 22,282-square-foot undeveloped lot in the City of Los Angeles, California. The proposed project would be designed in a modern style with natural exterior finish materials and with a stepped building design to follow the natural topography. The maximum plumb line (vertical) height of the residence envelope would not exceed a maximum height of 30 feet from grade, and the proposed project would meet all setback, residential floor area, and grading requirements pursuant to the Baseline Hillside Ordinance. The proposed project would include a swimming pool; outdoor living areas (barbeque area and patio); a landscaped area; open space; a fence surrounding the property; and an entrance gate. A backyard retention wall (maximum height of 10 to 12 feet) has been included in the project design to protect the building from mudslide and debris, and to divert rainwater. The project would be constructed in accordance with applicable municipal and building codes. The proposed project would require the removal of three coast live oak trees (Quercus agrifolia) and one scrub oak tree (Quercus berberidifolia). As a result of the removal of these four native oak trees, nine coast live oak trees would be planted on-site as part of the projectís landscaping. The remaining oak trees surrounding the project footprint would be preserved in place using best management practices during construction, such as fencing off the areas under the tree drip line as much as possible to avoid causing compaction from construction. The property would be accessed from Lankershim Boulevard via a joint easement private driveway through two adjacent single-family parcels. Site improvements for the proposed project would involve a total of approximately 1,333 cubic yards (CY) of cut and 130 CY of fill, and would require a haul route for the export of dirt.
