Vista Del Mar Project (2004)
In 2004, an EIR was prepared to analyze development of the entire site as a residential and commercial subdivision, known as the “Vista Del Mar” development. The development proposed to span both the north and south sides of W. Leland Road (see original site plan below). To date, all residential units south of W. Leland Road (highlighted area) have been built out.

 2004 VDM Map

As part of the overall development program analyzed in 2004, high density residential and business commercial land uses were contemplated for the area north of W. Leland Road. The 2004 EIR assumed that this northern portion of the Vista Del Mar development would include up to 563 housing units on 32.1 acres and 257,500 square feet of commercial building space on 14.78 acres, along with a 7-acre stormwater basin site. See below for links to the full 2004 EIR:

Current Project Description (2018):
The 2018 Project now proposes the development of 346 single-family dwelling units and 10 accessory dwelling units on approximately 25.93 acres, and the rezoning and relocation of approximately 12 acres of business commercial land for neighborhood- and community-serving commercial uses to the center of the project site, located north of West Leland Road (see non-highlighted area of the map above). Units would be broken down into three distinct neighborhoods:

  • Neighborhoods A-1 and A-2 would be located along the northern and eastern sides of the development and would consist of 136 “duet” units. Each duet would be designed to mimic one single-family detached home but would actually provide two separate units with a shared wall;
  • Neighborhood C would provide 110 alley-loaded detached units. Each unit in Neighborhood C would include a two-car garage accessible from an alley, street, or driveway, and a front door on the opposing façade, accessible via a pedestrian-only walkway;
  • Neighborhood D would provide the largest homes, consisting of 100 traditional detached dwelling units with two-car garages. Ten of the proposed units in Neighborhood D would include income-restricted accessory dwelling units.

2018 Alves Plan
Overall, the 2018 Project includes 214 fewer housing units and a lower overall residential density compared to the previous approvals. The location of residential uses would be adjusted, as compared to the previous approvals to improve circulation, site accessibility, and compatibility with neighboring residential uses.
Similar to the 2009 project, the 2018 Project contemplates development of a commercial component in the form of approximately 12 acres of various retail, restaurant, and other neighborhood-serving commercial uses.

The commercial uses would be relocated from the western side of the site to the center of the project site, with roads, driveways, and other circulation details and locations modified to accommodate this revision. This area is anticipated to include a maximum total of 140,000 square feet of retail commercial development. Pursuant to a memorandum of agreement executed by the developer, property owner, and City, these uses would be required to include an approximately 40,000 square-foot grocery store, or otherwise pay a penalty to the City.
