The proposed project involves the demolition of the 29 existing buildings structures on the project site and construction of eight buildings in addition to subterranean and above-ground parking structures. The project includes 9,800 SF of retail space within the buildings along Foothill Boulevard and 550 apartment units (481 market rate units, 23 moderate-income units and 46 low-income units). The proposed dwelling unit mix includes 165 studio units, 165 one-bedroom units, 191 two-bedroom and 29 3-bedroom units.
The project site is currently zoned EPSP-d2-IG-B-4, and if the proposed project is approved, the zoning designation would change to Planned Development (PD-36). The General Plan designation is currently Medium Mixed Use. The project requires the following discretionary actions:
(1) a Zoning Map Amendment (Planned Development application) to change the Zoning Designation from EPSP-d2-IG-B-4 to PD and establish a PD Plan;
(2) a Public Tree Removal Permit to allow the removal of 17 street trees along Foothill Boulevard and Kinneloa Avenue; and
(3) Design Review to approve the project design for consistency with the Zoning Code and Design Guidelines.
City of Pasadena has completed a Draft Sustainable Communities Environmental Assessment (SCEA) for the proposed 3200 E. Foothill Boulevard Mixed Use project.
