The City of Newport Beach is the Lead Agency for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Westcliff Medical Arts Building (a.k.a. Mariner's Medical Arts) project. The proposed project consists of the development and construction of a two story steel frame office building that encompasses 12,917 gross square feet of medical office floor area that will be complementary to the three existing buildings that currently occupy the site. A carport structure and 160 square feet of storage space on the westerly side of Building A is proposed to be demolished to accommodate the development. Development of the additional floor area will result in a total of 30,257 gross square feet of medical office floor area on the subject property. The proposed project also includes the repair and restoration and related improvements to the existing historic structures, designed by master architect Richard Neutra, that currently occupy the 1.65-acre property.
The City has prepared an Initial Study that provides a detailed project description and evaluation of the potential environmental effects of the proposed project. The Notice of Preparation and accompanying Initial Study will be released and available for a 30-day public review period beginning April 30, 2012, and ending May 29, 2012. Copies of the document will be available for review at the City of Newport Beach Planning Division, located at 3300 Newport Boulevard, Building C, Newport Beach, CA 92663, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and at all City’s library branches.
