Draft Environmental Impact Report

Project Description: Westfield Promenade LLC and Promenade Buyer LLC, both Westfield entities and together constituting the Applicant, propose the redevelopment of the 34-acre existing Westfield Promenade Shopping Center (Project Site) located within the Warner Center 2035 Specific Plan (Warner Center Plan) area of the City of Los Angeles (City) with a new multiple-phase, mixed-use development consisting of residential, retail/restaurant, office, hotel and entertainment uses (Project). The Project would specifically include up to 1,432 multi-family residential units, approximately 244,000 square feet of retail/restaurant uses, approximately 629,000 square feet of office space, up to 572 hotel rooms, and an Entertainment and Sports Center approximately 320,050 square feet and 15,000 seats in size. The proposed uses would be provided in several buildings throughout the Project Site that would transition in height from one story and three to four stories at the corner of Topanga Canyon Boulevard and Erwin Street, to 28 stories at the opposite corner of Owensmouth Avenue and Oxnard Street. The proposed uses would be supported by 5,610 on-site parking spaces at buildout. The Project would also include approximately 5.6 acres of ground-level, publically accessible open space, including a central green area and a number of plaza areas connecting the various uses. Overall, at buildout, the Project would remove 641,164 square of existing floor area and construct 3,271,050 square feet of new floor area, resulting in a net increase of 2,629,886 square feet of new floor area within the Project Site.

Anticipated Significant Environmental Effects: Based on analysis included in the Draft SEIR, the Project would result in significant and unavoidable impacts related to: (1) Project and cumulative construction-related regional air quality emissions; (2) Project and cumulative operational regional air quality emissions; (3) historical resources; (4) on-site construction noise impacts at on-site receptors; (5) cumulative on- and off-site construction noise impacts to off-site receptors; (6) Project and cumulative noise impacts from off-site construction vibration related to the significance threshold for human annoyance; (7) Project and cumulative off-site noise impacts during operation when there are sold-out events at the Entertainment and Sports Center; (8) Project and cumulative construction traffic; (9) intersection impacts for operation of Phases 1-3 (interim) conditions in the event that the Warner Center Plan improvements are not implemented by operation of Phases 1-3; and (10) Project and cumulative traffic impacts to neighborhood street segments during operation. All other potential impacts would be less than significant or mitigated to less-than-significant levels.
