Developer Greystar LLC plans to build a 146-unit complex on a 4.9-acre site at 3645 Haven Ave. With one, two or three bedrooms each, the apartments would be grouped into five three-story buildings.
Amenities would include an outdoor dining area, lounge, pool and spa. The plan calls for 255 parking spaces, with up to 15 set aside for electric cars.
None of the units will be below-market-rate housing, according to the staff report.
The study session was advisory only. The project doesn't need the commission's approval, as the city's community development director will make the final determination of whether it complies with the zoning code.
A new project, this one located within the downtown/El Camino Real specific plan zone, was also on the agenda. The owner of 612 College Ave., off Alto Lane, wants to turn a single-family home and a commercial warehouse into four townhomes. Two three-story buildings, with two living units apiece, would be built on the 0.2-acre site.
