The project would include 355 multi-family residential units in four buildings, 13,000 gross square feet (gsf) of ground floor retail space in two of the buildings that would be along Third Street, and 379 off-street parking spaces in the four buildings. The four buildings would total 641,920 gsf in size, ranging in height from 50 to 60 feet tall (four to five stories) and would be built around a central plaza and a private driveway with two visitor loading spaces, with access from Carroll Avenue. Sixteen surface parking spaces for the retail uses would be provided on the south side of the project site, with access provided from a right-turn-only driveway on Third Street at the southern boundary of the site. Twenty surface parking spaces for visitors would be provided along the central private driveway. Currently, the 5.75-acre site is occupied by a three-story, 103,000-gsf closed Coca-Cola bottling plant constructed in 1966, which would be demolished. Current use of the site is temporary parking of moving company trucks and charter buses. The site is within an M-1 (Light Industrial) District, the Third Street Special Use District (SUD), a 65-J Height and Bulk District, and the proposed Bayview Hunters Point Redevelopment Projects and Zoning Health Center Activity Node. The project would require Conditional Use Authorization for a Planned Unit Development and for residential uses in an M-1 District by the Planning Commission, which is a public hearing process.

491 BAYSHORE BOULEVARD - HOME DEPOT - Certification of a Final Environmental Impact Report - Subsequent to the publication of the Draft EIR the project sponsor identified a new preferred project. The revised project re-orients the location of the parking garage and the store itself, so that the parking garage is located on the southern end of the project site and the store is located on the northern end of the project site, but the effects would be similar to those analyzed for the original project in the Draft EIR. The home improvement center would be approximately 153,089 square feet, the same size as the original project. The store would include approximately 95,600 square feet of retail on the main floor, approximately 37,700 square feet of retail on the second floor, approximately 9,900 square feet of enclosed greenhouse space, and approximately 9,900 square feet of open garden center space. The separate parking garage would consist of two levels plus rooftop parking, totaling approximately 247,800 square feet and would include 555 parking spaces.

The proposed project consists of demolition of two vacant buildings, totaling 107,346 square feet on this 5.73-acre site. The proposed buildings would be approximately 40 feet in height. Vehicular access to the parking garage would be from Bayshore Boulevard with secondary access on Loomis Street. The project is located within the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. The proposed project would not require a conditional use authorization, however a staff-initiated discretionary review is before the Planning Commission. The site is within the adopted Industrial Protection Zone (IPZ) Special Use District and is located in a M-1 (Light Industrial) zoning district and within a 65-J height and bulk district.

Preliminary Recommendation: Certify the Final Environmental Impact Report.

G. PUBLIC COMMENT

At this time, members of the public may address the Commission on items of interest to the public that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Commission except agenda items. With respect to agenda items, your opportunity to address the Commission will be afforded when the item is reached in the meeting with one exception. When the agenda item has already been reviewed in a public hearing at which members of the public were allowed to testify and the Commission has closed the public hearing, your opportunity to address the Commission must be exercised during the Public Comment portion of the Calendar. Each member of the public may address the Commission for up to three minutes.

The Brown Act forbids a commission from taking action or discussing any item not appearing on the posted agenda, including those items raised at public comment. In response to public comment, the commission is limited to:

(1) responding to statements made or questions posed by members of the public; or

(2) requesting staff to report back on a matter at a subsequent meeting; or

(3) directing staff to place the item on a future agenda. (Government Code Section 54954.2(a))
