Project Description

The applicant is seeking Design Review approval to construct a new 2-story, 3,960-square foot residence and a 598-square foot attached garage on a vacant lot in Mill Valley. The new residence would consist of 4,560-square feet of total building area and 4,090-square feet of floor area which would result in a floor area ratio of 18.25 percent on the 22,408-square foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 29 feet above surrounding grade. The project also includes the following proposed improvements: the removal of an existing 1,025-square foot barn and the construction of a covered concrete patio. The house is proposed to be located 39 feet 2 inches from the northerly front property line, 11 feet from the westerly side property line, 55 feet 1 inch from the easterly side property line, and 35 feet 3 inches from the southerly rear property line. The proposed residence is located within the building envelope established by the Glen Grae Subdivision (RM 20-78).

Design Review approval is required because the project is in a planned district.
