The County of Los Angeles Regional Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to certify an environmental impact report for The Del Rey Shores Project — located at 4201 Via Marina, between Panay Way and Marquesas Way, Marina del Rey — at 9 a.m. Wednesday, January 25th, Hall of Records, 320 W. Temple St. Room 150, Los Angeles.

The project had received conceptual approval from the Marina del Rey Design Control Board with conditions on January 20th last year.

The applicant is requesting authorization to demolish an existing 202-unit apartment complex and subsequent construction of a 544-unit apartment complex.

The proposed project consists of 12 buildings 75 feet in height — five stories of apartments over two levels of parking — with architectural features extending approximately 25 feet above the roofline.

A total of 1,114 parking spaces would be provided within parking structures on site.

The applicant is also requesting to pay an affordable housing “in-lieu” fee instead of providing requisite affordable housing units for the proposed apartments, which would require ten percent of the number of units to be designated affordable units.

Selected materials will be on the regional planning commission Web site and at the Marina del Rey Library, 4533 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey.

Information can be obtained by contacting Dr. Russell Fricano, at (213) 974-6435, or http://planning.co.la.ca.us/drp_agnd.html
