Japantown Corporation Yard Redevelopment

File Nos. GP07-03-04 (approved 5/21/2008) and PDC07-073 (application was withdrawn)

The Japantown Corporation Yard Redevelopment Project site is located at 696 North 6th Street and 675 North 6th Street. The project considered in this Environmental Impact Report (EIR) included up to 600 market-rate residential units, up to 30,000 square feet of retail space, 10,000 to 20,000 square foot community amenity space, and up to 900 underground and/or surface parking spaces on the Corporation Yard site.

The EIR also included a variation on the proposed project which included up to 15,000 square feet of retail space may be replaced with up to 24 live/work units. The existing surface parking lot would be redeveloped as an affordable senior housing complex including up to 85 units of affordable housing and 40 parking spaces. Project buildings would range from 6 to 14 stories for the residential/mixed-uses and 1 to 2 stories for the community amenity uses. As the location and height of project buildings was conceptual at that time, this EIR evaluated a 14-story building envelope for the Corporation Yard site, and a six story building envelope was evaluated for the surface parking lot site.

The proposed project included a General Plan Amendment (File # GP07-03-04) and an amendment to the Jackson-Taylor Residential Strategy to change the land use designation to allow the proposed mix of uses, allow increased height and density on the project site, increase the caps on development to the extent required, and amend relevant design principles.

First Addendum to the The Japantown Corporation Yard Redevelopment Project EIR File No. PP14-006

This project includes the sale of land which would lead to redevelopment of the adjacent undeveloped parcel commonly referred to as the Japantown Corporation Yard site. Land Use Entitlements have not been submitted for this project. The 2013 Project, which is the subject of this Initial Study/Addendum, is similar to the 2008 Project and would include the development of up to 552 market-rate residential apartment units, 48 market-rate live/work units, and up to 25,000 square feet of retail space within several buildings; 60,000 square feet of community amenity space in a separate building; up to 784 parking spaces within at- and below-grade parking facilities; and approximately 0.75 acres of community open space on a 5.23-acre parcel, the former City Corporation Yard site. The location and height of individual buildings will be determined based on standards established on the future Planned Development Rezoning for the site and in the subsequent Planned Development permits. However, for the purposes of this analysis, it is assumed that project buildings would range in height from six to seven stories for the residential/retail component and from one to four stories for the retail/community amenity space.
