The subject property is an existing restaurant and bar ( Curve Bar and Restaurant') located in an M-2 (Heavy Industrial) Zoning District, a 105-F Height and Bulk District, a Mixed-Use Housing Zone, and the proposed Ballpark Vicinity SUD.
                    Preliminary Recommendation: Take Discretionary Review and approve the project as proposed, with conditions.

                    761 – 3RD STREET - north corner of King Street, Lot 005 in Assessor’s Block 3794 - Mandatory Discretionary Review of an  Extended Hours Premises Police Permit at an existing large fast food restaurant ( Happy Donuts'). The subject property is within the Ballpark Vicinity Special Use District (BVSUD), which allows large fast food restaurants (as defined by Planning Code Section 890.91) only as Conditional Uses. The existing facility was established prior to this requirement and thus is a nonconforming use (pursuant to Planning Code Sections 180 through 185). The proposal would allow the facility to operate lawfully 24 hours each day and thus involves the intensification of an existing nonconforming use. While this proposal would ordinarily require Conditional Use Authorization, under Planning Commission Resolution Number 14844, all BVSUD controls are currently enforced with Discretionary Review powers. The property is located in an M-2 (Heavy Industrial) Zoning District, a 105-F Height and Bulk District, a Mixed-Use Housing Zone, and the proposed BVSUD.
Preliminary Recommendation: Do not take Discretionary Review and approve the project as proposed.
