    Related Cases: Planned Unit Development No. PUD-008-2018, General Plan Amendment No. GPA-001-2018, and Site Plan No. SP-048-2018.

    Project Description: A request to repurpose an existing 8-story, unfinished, steel structure to a 400 unit senior housing project by amending the General Plan Land Use designation from Residential/Commercial Mixed Use 1 to Community Residential to increase the residential density from 42 dwelling units per acre to 60 dwelling units per acre specifically for senior housing; to rezone the site from Garden Grove Boulevard Mixed Use 1 (GGMU1) to Planned Unit Development (PUD) to implement the new General Plan designation; and Site Plan review for the proposed senior housing project, which includes additional building mass and an increase in developable site area to 5.09 acres from 3.09 acres. The developer is also requesting a density bonus of 35% under the State Density Bonus allowance and three concessions: a reduction in unit size from minimum requirements; a reduction in the required overall open space; and an increase in the number of allowable compact spaces. The Planning Commission will also consider a recommendation that the City Council adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project.
