423-429 Ocean Avenue Project

Filed: 7/19/2016

The applicant requests approval of a Development Review Permit (16ENT-0096), Variance (16ENT-0097), and Vesting Tentative Tract Map (16ENT-0131 & 19ENT-0192) for a three- and four-story, 14-unit condominium project with associated landscaping and subterranean parking located at 423-429 Ocean Avenue. The proposed project includes retention of portions of the extant apartment buildings and the courtyard area associated with the City Landmark-designated Colonial Revival style garden apartment complex. Variances are requested to allow for encroachments into required yard setbacks, to exceed allowable parcel coverage, and to modify off-street parking requirements. The property is located within the R4 (High Density Residential) District. Please see environmental reports page for the associated EIR for the project.

Planning Commission approved a revised Vesting Tentative Tract Map on July 17, 2019 for a 14-unit project for consistency with California Coastal Commission requirements.
