      12. 2004.0458E (J. NAVARRETE: (415) 558-5975)

        566 SOUTH VAN NESS AVENUE - Appeal of Preliminary Negative Declaration - The proposed project would include demolition of an existing 4,344 gross-square-foot, one-story retail/commercial building and rear storage building and construction of a five-story, 50-foot-tall mixed-use building which would contain 32 residential units on the second through fifth floors and retail/commercial use on the ground floor. The residential use would be 27,491 gross square feet (gsf) in area, and the retail/commercial space would be 4,344 gsf in size. The ground floor and basement levels would include 32 parking spaces designated for the residential use with ingress and egress from South Van Ness Avenue. The ground floor would contain the commercial space and residential lobby. The 12,253-square-foot site is located within the C-M (Heavy Commercial) zoning district and within a 50-X height and bulk district. The project is within the Housing Mixed Use PDR District and within the Eastern Neighborhood Policies adopted by the Planning Commission. The proposed project requires a conditional use authorization for residential use in the C-M district.

        Preliminary Recommendation: Uphold Negative Declaration

(Continued from Regular Meeting of January 20, 2004)

      13. 1999.0414E (C. ROOS: (415) 558-5981)

        325 FREMONT STREET - Residential development with parking - Assessor's Block 3747, Lots 012, 013, and 014. Substitution of Mitigation Measure and Addendum to a Final Negative Declaration. Re-evaluation of the revised project, detailed in the following agenda items for the project (Case Nos. 2004.0636C and 2004.0636V), led to an Addendum (December 20, 2004) to the prior Negative Declaration (Case No. 1999.0414E, Final Negative Declaration, February 29, 2000). The revisions to the project would increase the number of units from 59 to 70, an increase of 11 units; increase the number of parking spaces from 57 to 70, with use of mechanical lifts; eliminate a proposed roof deck and solarium and reduce the floors of the building by one (from 22 stories to 21 stories); and widen and landscape a portion of the Fremont Street sidewalk as provision of open space. The revised project would maintain the same height and mass of the building analyzed in the final Negative Declaration. The Addendum found that the conclusions of the prior Negative Declaration, with an updated mitigation measure, remain current and valid. In the resource area of archaeology, a modified, more intensive archeological resources mitigation measure, based on more recent information regarding potential archeological resources in the project vicinity is being required. The other mitigation measures remain unchanged and a revised Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Plan, including the new mitigation measure, has been prepared for project adoption. The CEQA Guidelines, Section 15074.1, states that a public hearing be held and findings made when one mitigation measure is deleted from a Negative Declaration for a project and another is substituted and a determination be made that the new mitigation measure is, "[E]quivalent or more effective" in avoiding or reducing the potential adverse effect of the project. This finding will be made during Commission consideration of the project for approval.

      Preliminary Recommendation: Hold public hearing on substitution of mitigation measure.
