The applicant requests Zoning Compliance Approval to construct a new 73,793 square foot building on a vacant lot in Marin City. The project will consist of 100 percent, exclusive of the managers units, affordable housing project with 20% of the units (15 units) for very low income households while the remaining 80% of the units (57 units) will be set aside for low income households. The construction of these affordable units will increase the stock of affordable housing within the County.
The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 53 feet five inches feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 10 feet from the south front property line; 10 feet from the east side property line; 14 feet from the west side property line; 41 feet one inch from the north rear property line.
