Project Description

The applicant, MainPlace Shoppingtown, LLC, submitted an application in January 2019 for a specific plan to allow up to 1,900 residential units, 400 hotel rooms, 1,400,000 total square feet of commercial space, and up to 750,000 square feet of office space. The project required approval of a zone change to create a new specific plan (SP No. 4), a tentative parcel map (TPM) to subdivide the site into ten (10) legal lots, and an addendum to the original 1983 Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The applicant  also submitted an application for a development agreement (DA). 

The project was recommended for approval to the City Council by the Planning Commission on May 13, 2019. The City Council subsequently approved the project on June 4 and June 18, 2019.
