Project Description 

Newport Center Anacapa Associates, LLC (Project Applicant) is proposing to construct a four-story structure that would contain 28 luxury condominium units and common space areas over a two-level below-grade parking garage. Development of the Project would entail demolition of the Newport Beach Car Wash and the construction and operation of the 28-unit condominium structure. The proposed structure would reach a height of approximately 53 feet with additional height for rooftop appurtenances.  Implementation of the Project would require the following discretionary approvals from the City of Newport Beach: 

  • General Plan Amendment – to change the site’s land use designation from Regional Commercial Office (CO-R) to Multiple Residential (RM) and establish a new Anomaly that allows 28 dwelling units;
  • Zone Code Amendment – to change the site’s zoning classification from Office Regional (OR) to Planned Community (PC) District;
  • Planned Community Development Plan - to establish land uses and development standards for the Project site;
  • Major Site Development Review – to allow for the development of a four-story structure containing 28 luxury condominium units and common space areas over a two-level below-grade parking garage;
  • Tentative Tract Map – to establish a 28-unit residential condominium subdivision map to allow each unit to be sold individually; and
  • Development Agreement – to provide the Project Applicant with the assurance that the development of the Project may proceed subject to the rules and regulations in effect at the time of Project approval and to provide the City with assurance that certain obligations of the Project Applicant will be met.
