Santa Monica Post Office Productions Project Mitigated Negative Declaration

The project applicant proposes to expand the floor area in the former U.S. Post Office building for creative office use, arts, and media uses. The project site is comprised of 5 parcels totaling 37,388 square feet (sf) and supports the 33,968 square foot, 2-story historical Post Office building with loading bays in the rear along 4th Court, and adjacent parking spaces on the north, west, and south sides of the building. The proposed project would adaptively reuse the City Landmark building for creative office through additions and interior remodeling to expand the currently available floor area by 12,852 sf, for a total of 46,820 sf including a 16,022 sf basement. The project would include construction of a proposed addition to the rear exterior of the building along 4th Court while preserving and rehabilitating its historic character-defining features in a manner consistent with applicable city, state, and federal guidelines including the Secretary of the Interior standards. The proposed project would have a maximum height of 32 feet toward the west side of the building, which would be slightly visible from street views.
