Downtown Strategy 2000 Plan

PP16-074 Downtown Strategy 2000 Second Phase I Adjustment (July 2016)

Proposal to amend the Downtown Strategy Plan 2000 to allow for an intensification of residential and office growth capacity in Phase 1 of the Strategy Plan 2000 as follows: 1) increase residential capacity from 5,500 units to 7,500 units (an increase of 2,000 units); and 2) increase office capacity from 1.4 million square feet to 2 million square feet (an increase of 600,000 square feet). No changes would be made to the retail square footage or hotel rooms in Phase 1 (350,000 square feet of retail and 900 hotel rooms). These increases in Phase 1 growth capacity will be accommodated by reducing the amount of development in the subsequent three phases of development, with no change to the total amount of development at buildout of the Downtown Strategy Plan 2000.

PP14-077 Downtown Strategy 2000 First Phase I Adjustment (October 2014)

Proposal to amend the Downtown Strategy 2000 Plan to allow for an intensification of residential growth capacity and a reduction in office capacity in Phase 1 of the Strategy 2000 Plan as follows: 1) increase Phase I residential capacity from 2,125 units to 5,500 units (resulting in 3,375 additional units in Phase I) and 2) decrease Phase 1 office capacity from 2,800,000 square feet to 1,400,000 square feet (a reduction of 1,400,000 square feet). These changes in Phase 1 growth capacity will be accommodated by increasing the amount of office space and decreasing residential capacity in subsequent phases of the Downtown Strategy, with no change to total amount of development at buildout.
