Resolution No. 2021-3 <br />Page 6 of 26 <br />The ICDP allocates 1,504 new residential units: 1,244 of which have been approved <br />and are being developed on the Uptown Newport property and the remaining 260 on <br />the Koll Center Newport office park. All 260 of the new residential units on this <br />Property would be "additive" units since no existing office uses would be removed. <br />Together, the two (2) properties would use all of the 550 additive units prescribed for <br />the ICDP area by the General Plan. <br />The General Plan contains a number of policies that provide for the orderly <br />development of the MU -H2 (Mixed -Use Horizontal 2) properties in the Airport <br />Business Area, from a business park, to a mixed-use district with cohesive residential <br />villages integrated within the existing fabric of office, industrial, retail, and airport - <br />related businesses. Residential opportunities are to be developed as clusters of <br />residential villages centering on neighborhood parks and interconnected by <br />pedestrian walkways. These would contain a mix of housing types and buildings that <br />integrate with ground level retail and residential uses at a sufficient scale to achieve a <br />complete neighborhood. <br />2. The Project is consistent with the following General Plan policies that establish <br />fundamental criteria for the formation and implementation of new residential villages <br />in the Airport Business Area in general, and in the CDPA (additional policy analysis is <br />included in Addendum No. ER2020-003. <br />Finding of Consistency with General Plan Policy LU 2.3 <br />Land Use Element Policy LU 2.3 - Range of Residential Choices: Provide opportunities <br />for the development of residential units that respond to community and regional needs in <br />terms of density, size, location, and cost.
