The 414 South San Gabriel Project (project) proposes the construction of a climate-controlled self-storage facility and executive artists space on an approximately 1.75-gross acre site. The project would construct a 199,358 sq. ft. building with approximately 190,232 sq. ft. of self-storage and approximately 9,126 sq. ft. of executive artists space. The proposed structure would be four stories with one level of subterranean self-storage space along S. San Gabriel Blvd., while a partial fifth story with one level of subterranean self-storage space would be along Commercial Ave. and Gladys Ave. On January 19, 2021, City Council approved the Planned Development Overlay zone (zone change), merger of parcels, and the environmental documents (Mitigated Negative Declaration). The project requires Design Review Commission review pertaining to building architectural design.
The City has prepared an Initial Study (IS) to determine the proposed project's potential impact on the environment. The City has determined that the project may have a significant effect on the environment, but by implementing the identified mitigation measures, the project's impacts could be reduced to less than significant levels.
