Draft Environmental Impact Report

CASE No. ENV-2016-1892-EIR
SCH No. 2016071049


Project Address: 3900 S. Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90037

Council District: 9—Price

Project Location:

The Project Site is located in the Southeast Los Angeles Community Plan area of the City of Los Angeles, approximately 2 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles and approximately 11 miles east of the Pacific Ocean. The Project Site is specifically located at the 3900 block of Figueroa Street bounded by 39th Street to north, Flower Drive to the east, commercial retail uses to the south, and Figueroa Street to the west. Primary regional access to the Project Site is provided via Interstate 110, which runs north-south and is located immediately east of Flower Drive, and Interstate 10, which runs east-west and is located approximately 1.5 miles north of the Project Site.

Project Description:

The Project involves the removal of eight existing multi-family residential buildings and surface parking areas in order to construct a mixed-use development on an approximately 4.4-acre site located adjacent to Exposition Park and near the University of Southern Californiaís University Park Campus in the City of Los Angeles. The Project is comprised of three components: a Hotel Component, a Student Housing Component, and a Mixed-Income Housing Component. The Hotel Component would include 298 rooms, 15,335 square feet of retail and restaurant uses, 13,553 square feet of shared guest and public amenities, and 7,203 square feet of public meeting spaces. The Student Housing Component would include 222 student housing units and 32,991 square feet of community-serving retail and restaurant uses. The Mixed-Income Housing Component would include 186 dwelling units (82 of which would be restricted to households earning no more than 80 percent of the Area Median Income), 20,364 square feet of creative office space, and 7,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses. Each component of the Project would be contained within a separate seven-story building with a maximum roof height of approximately 78 feet. The Hotel Component would also include one basement level containing the hotelís meeting facilities and back-of-house uses. All three components would be served by a central seven-story above-ground parking structure, containing one subterranean parking level and a rooftop amenity level, with a maximum roof height of approximately 88 feet. Upon completion, the Project would result in up to 624,167 square feet of new floor area, a total maximum floor area ratio (FAR) of 3.25:1, and a commercial FAR of 0.50:1.
