The proposed Project includes the development of a residential neighborhood that would consist of up to 200 condominiums (1-bedroom, 2-bedrooms and 3- bedrooms) in three-story buildings (some with four-story elements), approximately 300 parking spaces, and associated common areas and amenities. The Project would develop approximately 5.5 acres of the site and preserve the remaining 12.9 acres (approximately 70 percent of the site) of the 18.4 acres site as open space.
The buildings will have a height of 40-50 feet above the finished floor elevation of ground level units. Landscaping, pathways, and small open space areas would be installed throughout the site. Other planned neighborhood amenities include a recreation center, fitness center, and swimming pool. The Project also includes internal roads and infrastructure improvements. The Project may also include improvements to the existing right-of-way, including the addition of landscaping and lighting, and improvements to the San Francisco Bay Trail.
The Project includes a proposed General Plan amendment to change the land use designation of the site from Parks and Recreation to Medium Density Residential. The Project also includes a proposed change in the site’s zoning designation from Parks and Recreation (PR) to Planned Area District (PA), including exceeding the maximum building height limit of 35 feet for the Medium Density Residential General Plan designation.
The Project site is located at 1135 Canal Boulevard, south and east of the intersection of Canal Boulevard and Seacliff Drive in the neighborhood of Point Richmond, in the City of Richmond, Contra Costa County (see Figure 1 in this NOP). The Project site is bounded by Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline park (which is managed by the East Bay Regional Park District [EBRPD]) to the north, Seacliff Drive and the residential community of Seacliff to the east, vacant property and Seacliff Drive to the south, and Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline park and the community of Seacliff to the west.
