The City’s homepage has been updated to replace the Elections bar on the right side with Manhattan Village Mall, which then links to the main page on the project and all the information compiled.
The project, proposed by the property owner RREEF, is improvements and an expansion to the Manhattan Village Shopping Center located at 3200-3600 North Sepulveda Boulevard. The approximately 44-acre Shopping Center site includes an enclosed, main mall building and several freestanding buildings. The site currently includes approximately 420,247 square feet of retail uses, approximately 65,734 square feet of restaurant uses, a 17,500 square foot cinema (Closed May 2012), approximately 36,151 square feet within six banks, and approximately 21,678 square feet of medical/office uses, for a total of approximately 572,837 square feet. There are currently 2,393 surface parking spaces on the site. In addition, there are also 210 leased parking spaces that are located off-site, which are not included in project parking counts.
The proposed project would result in a net increase of approximately 123,672 square feet of restaurant and retail uses (approximately 194,644 square feet of new area and demolition of approximately 70,972 square feet of existing retail, restaurant, and cinema) to be developed within three components. Upon project completion, the Shopping Center would include a total of approximately 696,509 square feet. In addition, in order to respond to the future needs and demands of the southern California economy, an “equivalency program” is proposed that provides for the exchange between land uses based on P.M. peak traffic equivalency factors. With implementation of the equivalency program, a maximum of 133,389 square feet of net new area (approximately 204,361 square feet of new area and demolition of approximately 70,972 square feet of existing retail, restaurant, and cinema) would be developed within the Development Area for a total of up to 706,226 square feet area. The proposed project would also include the addition of approximately 544 parking spaces to be provided in surface parking areas and within multiple parking structures.
The project also includes a Master Use Permit, Variance, Sign Program and Sign Exception. Planning Commission and City Council public hearings will be held during the process and the public is encouraged to participate and provide input.
