Green Hotel Apartments

86 S. Fair Oaks Avenue


The proposed project involves construction of a six-story mixed-use building with 64 residential units and 5,000 square feet of commercial space on an existing surface parking lot at 86 South Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. The project site is 32,362 square feet and the proposed mixed-use building would be 76,980 square feet in size. The ground floor would consist of 5,000 square feet of commercial space and 20 parking spaces, with 11 of the 20 parking spaces “tucked under” the building. In addition, 15 bicycle parking spaces (4 open rack and 11 enclosed) would be  provided on the ground floor. Residential units would be located on the second through sixth floors. Two levels of underground parking are proposed and would provide a total 96 parking spaces for residents, 28 of which would be tandem spaces, and 50 additional parking spaces (plus three on the ground level) to replace the existing surface parking for nearby users displaced by the project. A total of 166 parking spaces would be provided.

The proposed project would provide 9,600 square feet of open space, which would consist of 2,880 square feet of private open space (including a pool), a 1,050 square-foot gym, and 5,670 square feet of open space provided in the courtyard on the ground floor.

The proposed building has a height of 75 feet and 76,980 square feet of gross floor area (a 2.38 floor area ratio). The height, floor area ratio, and setbacks meet the development standards for the CD-1 zoning district. Conceptual elevation diagrams for the proposed project are shown in Figures 10 and 11. Parking would meet development standards with the condition that the applicant obtains agreements to lease out the replacement parking serving off-site users.

The driveways to the project site would be located along Dayton Street and provide access to the surface and underground parking. Both ingress and egress would be available from Dayton Street. Pedestrian access to the residential lobby and commercial uses would be available off of Fair Oaks Avenue.
