About

An amendment to the Estuary Policy Plan was approved changing the land use designation from Planned Waterfront Development-1 to Planned Waterfront Development-4. The site was rezoned from M-40, Heavy Industrial to PWD-4, Planned Waterfront Zoning District-4 and OS-RSP, Open Space-Regional Serving Park. Amendments were made to the land use maps of the Central City East Redevelopment Plan and the Central District Urban Renewal Plan consistent with the Estuary Policy Plan designation.

The project includes the approval of a Vesting Tentative Map. No. 7621, a Preliminary Development Plan, Design Review Guidelines, and a Development Agreement. An Environmental Impact Report was prepared for the project and was certified by the Planning Commission and City Council.
