Case Number: ENV-2017-506-EIR
Council District: 14 - de León
State Clearinghouse Number: 2019050010
Community Plan Areas: Central City
Project Location: 754 South Hope Street; 609 - 625 West 8th Street, Los Angeles, CA, 90017

Project Description: The Project includes the construction of a 50-story mixed-use development comprised of 580 residential units and up to 7,499 square feet of ground floor commercial/retail/restaurant space on a 34,679-square-foot site. The Project would provide 636 vehicle parking spaces within three subterranean levels and eight above-grade levels and four vehicle parking spaces on the ground floor. To accommodate the Project, an existing surface parking lot and four-story parking structure would be demolished. Upon completion, the total building floor area would be 554,927 square feet with a maximum height of 592 feet and a Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of approximately 9.25:1


Based on the analysis included in the Draft EIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to Project and cumulative construction noise impacts from on-site noise sources; cumulative noise impacts from off-site construction traffic; Project vibration impacts associated with human annoyance from on-site construction; and Project and cumulative vibration impacts associated with human annoyance from off-site construction traffic. All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
