The City of Pasadena currently owns a 48,000 square foot commercial site and is considering developing the site with housing. In advance of a final recommendation to City Council, staff is assembling ideas for alternative commercial and mixed use development options.
The site, located at the northeast corner of Fair Oaks Avenue and Orange Grove Boulevard is zoned Limited Commercial District 3, Subdistrict A (see below). Developers and other interested parties are invited to submit ideas for consideration including affordable housing, mixed-use and commercial. At this time, this is not a request for development proposals for the site.
Please limit your written comments to one page. All ideas and comments will be evaluated as the City moves forward with a development project.
