Planning committee approves mixed-use project on La Jolla Boulevard

La Jolla Development Permit Review Committee voted 5-0-2 this week to recommend approval of a mixed-use site with retail on the ground floor, residential above and 13 parking spaces in an underground garage for a vacant corner lot at 7401 La Jolla Blvd.

“It’s a good building for this corner,” noted committee member Laura DuCharme Conboy about the housing project being designed by Island Architects headed by Tony Crisafi.

“I’d like to thank the architect for observing the PDO (Planned District Ordinance) limitations on the number of stories, they did a real nice job,” commented committee member Mike Costello about the project’s design.

Longtime community planner Bob Collins expressed concern about access into and out of the corner lot development that has a bus stop in front of it on La Jolla Boulevard, but was reassured by architects that wouldn’t be a problem.

The project will be passed along for review by the La Jolla Community Planning Association at a future date.
