Newport Beach Planning Commission Recommends Denial of Reduced Plan for 150 Newport Center Project

September 2, 2016  -  Los Angeles Times 

​A scaled-down 35-unit condominium and townhome development proposed for Newport Center will move to the Newport Beach City Council with a recommendation for denial from the Planning Commission. After hours of public discussion Thursday night about the 150 Newport Center project, the planning commissioners voted 5-2 to recommend denial. Commissioners Peter Zak and Ray Lawler dissented.

The development, proposed by Newport Center Anacapa Associates LLC, has gone through a series of changes in the past several months at the commission's behest.  The developer originally proposed a seven-story, 49-unit building reaching 69 feet tall. However, after its initial meeting with the Planning Commission in July, the company reduced the plan to six stories with 45 units reaching 65 feet.

Then, after a two-hour public discussion at the commission's Aug. 18 meeting where commissioners were unable to come to a consensus about the project's density and height, the developer reduced the planned height of the building to 50 feet in five stories and cut the number of units to 35.
