Main Component of the Project
Single-family Residence - New
15 Midway Avenue
Mill Valley, CA 94941
Parcel Number: 048-121-04
The applicant requests Design Review and Variance approval to demolish an existing 1,057 square foot single-family residence, and construct a new 2,315 square foot single-family residence with a 480 square foot attached garage on an improved lot in unincorporated Mill Valley. The proposed development would have a building area of 2,795 square feet and a floor area of 2,315 square feet. Therefore, the proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 39 percent on the 5,924 square foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 27 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setback: 23 feet, 6 inches from the western rear property line; 3 feet from the northern side property line; 14 feet from the eastern front property line; 11 feet, 1 inch from the southern side property line.
Design Review approval is required because the project includes a new single-family residence on a vacant lot that is less than 50 percent of the minimum lot area, pursuant to section 22.82.050. Variance approval is required because the project exceeds the maximum 30 percent floor area ratio requirement.
