Up to 23 non-protected trees on the site will be removed, as well as 17 street trees along the project site’s street frontages. Two street trees are proposed to be removed, which will require a public tree removal permit through the Department of Public Works’ Urban Forestry Division.The project site, along 465-577 S. Arroyo Parkway, consists of five contiguous lots totaling about 3.3 acres along the west side of South Arroyo Parkway between Bellevue Drive and East California Boulevard. It is currently developed with nine buildings, surface and subterranean parking, and landscaping.The project is currently in the preliminary consultation phase of the city’s approval process.A report by the Department of Planning and Community Development showed many of the buildings along South Arroyo Parkway south of the project site are one-story commercial buildings, although there’s a five-story mixed-use building across Arroyo Parkway, from the 491 to 495 S. Arroyo Parkway. Buildings at the north end of the project site and the Whole Foods building and others north of the site are larger-scaled structures up to four stories high.The Metro L Line (formerly Gold Line) tracks adjoin the west side of the site. The Del Mar Station is about 1,600 feet north of the northernmost point of new construction on the site and the Fillmore Station is about 1,300 feet from the southeast corner of the site.Nearby designated historic resources include the Home Laundry at 432 S. Arroyo Parkway to the northeast, built in 1923 by Marston, Van Pelt and Maybury; Bryan Court at 427 S. Marengo Ave. to the northeast, built in 1916 by D.M. Renton; the Evanston Inn at 385 S. Marengo Ave. to the northeast built in 1887; the South Marengo Historic District to the east, the Marengo-Pico Landmark District to the southeast, Royal Laundry at 443 S. Raymond Ave. to the west built in 1927, and the Kaufmann and Drive-up Building built in 1939 by George Whyte.At the Design Commission meeting Tuesday, staff from the Planning and Community Development Department will present applicable design guidelines and potential design issues for commission members to comment on or to provide input that would help finalize the design.Projects of this magnitude also traditionally go through a community consultation and public hearing process where input from members of the community also help shape the final design.The Design Commission’s meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. and can be accessed through https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89814640260 or by calling (669) 900-6833 and using the webinar ID 898 1464 0260.Public comment may be sent by email to [email protected] prior to the meeting day. or through www.cityofpasadena.net/planning/public#comment/.
