The 1100 Ocean Avenue site above, the design for development below.
And the plans as proposed:
The proposal is to demolish the existing bus shelter and surface parking lot and to construct a mixed-use, five-story, 55-foot-tall building totaling approximately 86,500 gross square feet (gsf) with five-off-street parking spaces all as part of a Planned Unit Development (PUD). The project would include 71 affordable dwelling units and approximately 7,300 gsf of ground-floor commercial space (tenants not yet determined). The project requires subdividing the 30-acre lot creating a 25,772 square-foot lot with approximately 137-feet of frontage on Ocean Avenue.
The project is a joint partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Housing and the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center. The building will have four levels of residential occupancy above ground-floor retail space. The residential units will be provided as follows: (18) studio units, (18) one-bedroom units, (21) two-bedroom units, and (13) three-bedroom units. Forty-eight percent of the units contain two bedrooms or more. The units are 100% affordable with approximately 21 of the units intended for occupancy by young adults transitioning out of foster care. The remaining residential units are intended for occupancy by households earning less than 50% of area median income. The parking garage is located at grade level and is accessed from the Lee Avenue extension. The garage contains five-off-street parking spaces including a handicap accessible space and a car share space. The building will have 32 class 1 bicycle parking spaces for the residential space and four class 1 bicycle parking spaces for the commercial space. The remainder of the ground floor will provide supportive service and community space.
The Project includes approximately 7,841 square-feet of on-site residential open space with the remainder of the open space requirement being met by the proposed adjacent public plaza open space. The adjacent open space will be developed by the City separate from the project. The primary areas of on-site open space are located within the courtyard at the podium level and the rear yard.
The project requires a Conditional Use Authorization and exceptions (including rear yard, open space, and permitted obstructions) to continue, all of which the Planning Department recommends the Planning Commission approve this week.
