Project Address: 2525 North Main Street

Project Description:

The applicant, AC 2525 Main LLC, has submitted an application to construct a 517-unit apartment building at 2525 North Main Street (north-east corner of Main Street and Edgewood Road). The 5.9-acre site currently contains a two-story office building and paved parking lot which are proposed for demolition. The applicant is proposing to construct a five-story building apartment building wrapped around an eight-story parking structure containing 910 parking spaces. Courtyards, landscaping and various on-site amenities are also proposed. The project will require a general plan amendment, zone change, and environmental impact report.

The project has been resubmitted into the development review process which consists of a review of the proposal by the various City agencies (Planning, Building, Public Works Agency, etc.). The revised plan proposes 496 units and 908 parking spaces (ratio of 1.83 parking spaces per unit), a revised unit mix (78 Studios, 271 One bedrooms, 119 Two bedrooms, and 28 Three bedrooms), the removal of the parking structure access from Edgewood Road, and modifications to the architectural style.

It will be several months before staff is able to make a formal recommendation on the project and before a public hearing is scheduled before the Planning Commission and City Council.
