5D - Considration of #LUR2004-00064, a review of a Concept Plan for Ball Aerospace & Technologies CoCITY OF BOULDER PLANNING BOARD AGENDA ITEM MEETING DATE: November 4, 2004 AGENDA TITLE: Public hearing and consideration of LUR2004-00064, a review of a Concept Plan for Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation for consideration of a campus expansion at 1600 Commerce Street, including building heights of up to 55 feet. ApplicanUOwner: Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation REQUESTING DEPARTMENT: Planning Department Peter Pollock, Planning Director Elizabeth Hanson, Acting Land Use Review Manager Brent Bean, Senior Planner OBJECTIVES: 1. Hear applicant and staff presentations 2. . Hold public hearing 3. Planning Board discussion of the Concept Plan issues. STATISTICS: Proposal: Concept Plan review and Comment on an amended site plan permitting development of 179,841 square feet of new building area including a 135,283 square foot addition to the Fisher Complex and a 44,558 squaze foot office east of Commerce both buildings to measure up to 55' in height. Total building area on the site will be 502,804 squaze feet. Location: 1600 Commerce, north of Arapahoe on both sides of Commerce. Size of Tract: 1,005,924 squaze feet (23.09 acres) Zoning: IG-E, Industrial General - Established BVCP designation: Light Industrial Existing Use: Industrial Requested Variations: -Height of 55 feet - Pazking reduction of 33 percent BACKGROUND: A Site Review was approved for this site in 1997. The applicant is voluntarily requesting Planning Boazd consideration of a new Concept Plan because of the number of changes proposed. The 1997 plans were primarily related to office expansions on the site. This request s:\plan\pb-items~nemos\16oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paee# 1 will increase the laboratory /assembly space and provide some replacement office space. The site is just over one million square feet in size. The IG-E zone permits an FAR ratio of 0.5 to 1 or a maximam of 502,962 square feet of floor area to be developed on this site.

" - 21% parking reduction "' - 33% parking reduction The total lot area was changed from 24.01 acres to 23.09 acres (a difference of .92 acres) due to a portion of the western property that was included on the 1997 Plan, however, is not a part of the 2004 Plan; as well as improved survey information for the property east of Commerce. The portion in question included a section of 48'" CirGe that is not Ball Aerospace property. The "Fisher Buildings" house the laboratory and assembly spaces for many of the Ball projects. Ball is finding that the aerospace projects (satellite and related projects) are increasing in size. The current facilities limit the size of testing equipment necessary for the expanding sizes of aerospace equipment being developed today. As a result of the need to construct larger testing equipment within its buildings, the expanded building requested will approach the maximum heights permitted of the city. The Fisher buildings cunently have heights of up to 55' with mechanical equipment extending the allowed 16' higher for appurtenances. This will result in buildings with heights of up to 71 feet when combining appurtenances and building heights. Appurtenances can not take up more than 25% of a roof top area, current and proposed buildings will comply with this requirement. Office space will be added to the northeast portion of the Fisher buildings in addition to the 44,558 squaze foot office proposed to replace the original Ball office east of Commerce. A foui floor parking garage (square footage exempt from FAR calculations) has been proposed for development on the pazking lot west of Commerce. The proposed pazking structure will have a height of 45 feet. Maacimum by-right height is 40 feet in the IG-E zone. STAFF COMMENTS: Concept Plan Guidelines for Review and Comment. A. Are the proposed building locations and uses appropriate for the site and their proposed locations? The Fisher buildings are located at the northwestern most portion of the developable site and are 600 feet north of Arapahoe. There ground floors will be 10' below Arapahoe. Combining the distance and lower elevations, the appazent height of the buildings will appeaz have a height of 40' plus appurtenances as viewed from Arapahoe. The new office building proposed for the east side of Commerce is s:\plan\pb-i[ems~nemos\16oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paee# 2 similarly almost 600 feet nortll of Arapahoe, with a ground floor elevation more than 10' below Arapahoe. The new parking garage has been proposed to have a height of 45 feet and will to be placed less than 200' north of Arapahoe. Four floors of parking have been proposed with stair/elevator towers as necessary to serve the parking. The basic building height will appear as 34 feet from Arapahoe, but due to the placement of the stnicture adjacent to the north sloping hillside, the city measured height will be 38 feet to the parking deck and 51 feet to the top of the stairway towers. Cars parked on the fourth floor of the deck will add an average height of 6' to the floor elevation, or an apparent height of 38' above grade from Arapahoe. The height modification is necessary to provide the fourth floor, parapet walls, and the stairways & elevator towers serving the parking garage. B. Is a building height of up to 55 feet appropriate for this area? The current Fisher buildings have principal building heights of up to 55' and appurtenances with heights of up to 71'. At the time of Site Review consideration of this request, the applicant will need to address the site review criteria for a height of greater than 40'. The new additions will be similarly constructed. Basements will be added to some of the spaces to meet mechanical needs and keep heights within city limits. The appurtenances will include cranes, mechanical systems and other building needs for the building spaces below. Appurtenance spaces will not exceed 25% of the roof area for any building they are placed. As shown in the preliminary building elevations, the appurtenance areas will be placed such that view corridors through the site will not be compromised from Arapahoe and residential areas to the south of Arapahoe. Before adc New addition from same location lot from Arapahoe and CommerCe. ,~ ~ _.. :~ s:\plan\pb-items\memos\16oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # 5D Page# 3 Befor After The new office complex east of Commerce will be placed on a north sloping hillside such that the building height will appear as 32' in height from Arapahoe. This building will likely not be visible from Arapahoe because the existing four story building at the northeast corner of Arapahoe and Commerce will screen the building from view. The parking garage however, will be very visible from Arapahoe. The apparent height of the structure from Arapahoe will be less than about 45' with the exception of the stair/elevator towers that will add 14' to the building height. Staff recommends the parking garage height not exceed 40' including stair and elevator towers. It may be necessary to lower the first floor into the ground to accomplish this condition. C. Is the proposed architecture appropriate for the site? The architecture proposed for the Fisher buildings and the new office complex is similar to the existing buildings found on the Ball campus including precast concrete panels, cmu (concrete masonry units, concrete block) inserts and glass curtain walls. The parking structure similarly has been proposed to be constructed of concrete panels, but as proposed it will look like a parking garage with no association to the architecture of other buildings on the Ball campus. Staff would recommend that the final architecture be designed to reflect or mimic the proposed office building east of s:\plan\pb-items\memosU6oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Pa~e# 4 Commerce, rather than a stand along azchitectural monument. Window sized penetrations should be provided at each parking level rather than continuous open voids along the south, east and west elevations. The pazking structure proposed for the 1997 plan was designed to look like an office building. (~Guidelines for Concept Review and Comment: The following guidelines are to be used to guide the Planning Board's discussion regarding the Concept plan. It is anticipated that issues other than those listed in this section will be identified as part of the concept plan review and comment process. The Planning Board may consider the following guidelines when providing comments on a concept plan. (1)Characteristics of the site and surrounding areas, including, without limitation, its location, surrounding neighborhoods, development and architecture, any known natural features of the site including, without limitation, mature trees, watercourses, hills, depressions, steep slopes and prominent views to and from the site; This site is located north of Arapahoe at Commerce Street, which is within an area designated for Indushial use. The new hospital was constructed west of the site and Boulder Creek is to the north. South of Arapahoe is the Eisenhower residential neighborhood. The northern portion of this site is within the Boulder Creek flood plain. The plans presented for this review show a portion of the "FA" building and the new mechanical space within the area designated High Hazazd. In 1980 when building FA was constructed, it was acknowledged that the High Hazazd zone went azound the proposed building, but the mapping for the azea was not changed. The applicant has submitted an application for a map amendment including topographic information that supports the 1980 building permit application and development of a new portion of building FA within the area currently shown as high hazazd. Additional information has been requested before the map amendment can be processed. If staff finds they can support the map amendment, a map change should be completed prior to approval of the Site Plan. The current plans will not impact other sensitive lands that may be present within the north end of Balls ownership along Boulder Creek. The existing pazking lot will not be expanded as well. (2)Commuuity policy considerations including, without limitation, the review process and likely conformity of the proposed development with the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan and other ordinances, goals, policies, and plans, including, without limitation, subcommunity and subarea plans; Ball Aerospace has been located in Boulder since the eazly 50's at the same site. This azea has historically been designated for industrial use and is not planned for any changes. The Ball site is not located within an active subcommunity azea. The Eisenhower neighborhood has responded to the 1996 Ball expansion plans, the new hospital site plan and flood plain changes to Boulder, Skunk and Bear creeks over the past 10 yeazs. Continued industrial use at this location is consistent with the intent of the BVCP. Heights of up to 55' on this site are consistent with previous reviews. The fact that much of the impacts for height over 40' are reduced by the existing 10-15' drop to the north present on this site makes taller heights in the north portions of this site more acceptable. s:\plan\pb-items~cnemos\16oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paee# 5 (3)Applicable criteria, review procedures, and submission requirements for a site review; At the time of Site Review application, the applicant will need to provide additional information showing the view of the new buildings from Arapahoe. (The applicant has completed several photds showing the proposed changes that were shown at the neighborhood meeting.) In addition, a clear land use table with building areas, lot areas, building heights and use (office, research, etc) should be provided with Site Plan submittal documents. The proposed pazking reduction will need clear documentation of how many people are located on this site, what transit use levels have been developed and what future transit uses will be encouraged to support the requested pazking reduction. (4)Permits that may need to be obtained and processes that may need to be completed prior to, concurrent with, or subsequent to site review approval; The flood plain high hazard relocation will need to be approved by the city prior to application for any building permits for the portions of building located within the currently mapped high hazazd zone for Boulder Creek. (5)Opportunities and constraints in relation to the transportation system, including, without limitation, access, linkage, signalization, signage, and circulation, existing transportation system capacity problems serving the requirements of the traasportation master plan, possible trail links, and the possible need for a traffic or transportation study; As part of the effort to mitigate the parking reduction requested and to make the existing Transportation Demand Management efforts more efficient and effective, the applicant is encouraged to consider participation in the Foothills Transportation Management Organization (TMO). By joining this organization with other businesses, Ball Aerospace will be able to take advantage of a wide array of transportation benefits with a greater economy of scale then can be achieved as an individual business. As part of the application for Site Review, the applicant will need to calculate the number of trips expected. If there is a significant increase in trips compazed to the previous approvals, an updated traffic impact sturdy will be required at the time of site review submittal. (6) Environmental opportunities and constraints including, without limitation, the identification of wetlands, important view corridors, flood plain and other natural hazards, wildlife corridors, endangered and protected species and habitats, the need for further biological inventories of the site and at what point in the process the information wi11 be necessary; The northem portion of the site which contains the Fisher Buildings is located in the Boulder Creek flood plain. In addition, a portion of the northwesterly portion of building FA is within the mapped High Hazard zone. In 1980 when building FA was constructed, it was acknowledged that the High Hazard zone went azound the proposed building, but the mapping for the azea was not changed. The applicant has submitted an application for a map amendment including topographic information that supports the 1980 building permit application and development of a new portion of building FA within the azea currently shown as high hazard. Additional information has been requested before the map amendment can be processed. If staff finds they can support the map amendment, a map change should be completed prior to approval of the Site Plan. The current plans will not impact other sensitive ]ands that may be present within the north end of Balls ownership along Boulder Creek. T'he existing parking lot will not be expanded as well. s:\plan\pb-i[emsUnemosV 6oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Pa¢e# 6 (7)Appropriate ranges of land uses; Continued industrial use of this site by Ball is consistent with the range of uses supported for this site. (8)The appropriateness of or necessity for housing. This site has always been used for industrial use. Housing has not been considered within the context of this request. Ball has a need to expand existing industrial use on this site. Providing housing on this site could limit Ball's ability to meet their industry needs.

ZONING: IG-E, Industrial General - Established REQUESTED VARIATIONS FROM THE LAND USE REGULATIONS: 7. Building height to 55' 2. Parking reduction of 36% I. REVIEW PINDINGS The comments made in this document will be forvuarded to Planning Board for review and comment at their November 4, 2004 public hearing. Comments made in this review are for the applicants use in completing the Site Review submittal documents. There are a number of comments that have been made in this document that will require amending the Site Review submittal documents. Planning Board action is required for consideration of the Site Review due to the building height and parking reduction requested. The floodplain locations for this site will require final approval of a map amendment (see flood plain comments, additional engineering infortnation is required) before building permits and the site review can be approved based on a revised high hazard location. Some changes to the elevations for the parking garage have been required. The size and location of the proposed appurtenances for the Fisher Complex are consistent with current city regulations; heights are not greater than 16' above the final elevation of the building they have been placed. II. CITY REQUIREMENTS Access/Circulation 1. As part of the effort to mitigate the parking reduction requested and to make the existing Transportation Demand Management efforts more e~cient and effective, the applicant is encouraged to consider participation in the Foothills Transportation Management Organization (TMO). By joining this organization with other businesses, Ball Aerospace will be able to take advantage of a wide array of transportation benefits with a greater economy of scale then can be achieved as an individual business. For more information about this TMO, the applicant can contact Andrea Robbins at 303- 441-4139. 2. As part of the application for Site Review, the applicant will need to calculate the number of trips expected. If there is a significant increase in trips compared to the previous approvals, an updated traffic impact sturdy will be required at the time of site review submittal. Steve Durian, 303 441-4493 Building Design 1. The parking garage should be designed to eliminate the look of a parking garage from Arapahoe and s:\plan\pb-items~cnemos\16oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paee# 9 the west (adjacent to River Bend). 2. Detailed roof top plans showing where buildings separate from one another must be provided for the Fisher complex, showing where separation walls will be placed between buildings FM, FT and FA. 3. Roof top mechanical locations and areas (must be less than 25% of the rooftop area) must be shown on a roof top plan for buildings FM, FT and FA. 4. Detailed architectural plans for the Fisher compiex, new office building east of Commerce and the Parking Garage must be provided with the Site Review application documents including basic materials, colors and fenestration. 5. The parking garage should have the appearance of an office building from the Arapahoe street frontage and the west elevation adjacent to River Bend. Parking garage may not exceed the permitted height of 40 feet (45' shown). Case Manager Flood Control A portion of this property is within the 100-year, conveyance zone, and high hazard zone of Boulder Creek. Any development within the regulatory floodplain must compiy with the requirements of Title 9, Chapter 9, Boulder Revised Code. The High Hazard zone re-delineation submitted on August 2, 2004 is not acceptable. Instead of using the right over bank velocity (which is an average value) the velocity distribution must be used to calculate the product number for the high hazard zone. A product number calculation sheet must be prepared to show the velocity histogram, smoothed velocity profile, and depth profile as a function of station. The limits of the high hazard zone can then be determined from the product of the velocity and depth at each station. It may be necessary to cut a new cross section through the location of interest to perform the analysis. Nancy Steinberger 303-441-3206 Fees Because revisions or corrections are not required for this application, based on 2004 development review fees, hourly billing will not be applicable unless another application is required or the applicant revises the current proposal. Fire Protection 1. New and remodeled areas require automatic fire sprinkler systems. 2. Fire alarm systems will be required as stated in the 2003 IFC. 3. Access and fire hydrant locations in and around the building additions are required to meet City of Boulder Design and Construction Sfandards. Ron Mahan, 303 441-4356 Landscaping Detailed landscape plans must be provided with the Site Plan application showing how current city landscape standards (B.R.C. 93.3-2, 9-3.3-3, and 9-3.3-4) will be met or exceeded. In particular, please note parking lot landscape standards in 9-3.3-4 will require additional internal parking lot landscaping and screening. Bev Johnson 303-441-3272. Legal Documents No requirements at this time. Julia Chase, City Attorney's Office, Ph. (303) 441-3020. Neighborhood Comments The applicant held a public meeting with the neighborhood on August 23, 2004. Most comments heard at the meeting related to the new addition to the Fisher buildings and the associated heights of the building and how it would relate to the existing buildings in the Fisher Complex. No objections to the proposed height were made. However, comments were received from the neighbor to the west regarding the proposed 42' tall parking structure and a concern that the building would be taller than necessary. Couid one level of parking be placed below grade? Parking As part of the site review, analysis of the parking needs for the site is required to support the parking reduction. This may relate to the tra~c numbers, but also needs to consider the number of employees s:\plan\pb-items~nemosU6oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Pace# 10 that will be on site when the peak parking demand occurs. The effectiveness of the TDM plan may be affected by the number of parking spaces needed. Steve Durian, 303 441-4493 III. INFORMATIONAL COMMENTS Buiiding Codes Applicant has reviewed building connection requirements with staff and a determination has been made that the applicant can make corrections to existing building separations such that building FT/FA can be legally separated from building FM, such that the heights of the two buildings can be considered separately. Case Manager/Plans Examiner. Drainage (Steve Buckbee, 303-441-3279) 1. A Preliminary Storm Water Report and Plan meeting 7.03 of the City of Boulder Design and Construction Standards will be required by the applicant at time of Site Review application. 2. The storm line and water quality feature that are proposed to replace the existing drainage swale will need to be sized to convey the major storm from the OS-1 drainage basin. 3. The storm line and water quality feature proposed to replace the existing drainage swale will need to be public and located within an easement. Make this correction on the Utility Plan and the Preliminary Storm Water Report and Plan required for Site Review. 4. In the Conceptual Storm Water Report the imperviousness of historic sub-basin H7 and proposed sub-basin C2 is shown to be 49%. Check this percentage and revise as necessary in the Preliminary Storm Water Report and Plan required for Site Review. Utilities (Steve Buckbee, 303-441-3279) 1. The utility easements for the proposed fire hydrant runs on Utility A Sheet 6 of 21 and Utility B Sheet 7 of 21 show private utilities encroaching in the easements. Per Boulder Revised Code 8-6-3 private utilities are not allowed to encroach into public easements. The public utility easements on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review will have to be reconfigured to eliminate the private utility encroachments. 2. On Utility A Sheet 6 of 21 the new fire hydrant run to the North of building FA requires a valve after the 2 water service taps, so maintenance can be performed on the hydrant without taking the meters out of service. Correct this on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 3. On Utility A Sheet 6 of 21 and Utility B Sheet 7 of 21 the proposed fire hydrant runs tapped off of Commerce are shown with valves located on property line. Only 1 valve is required and it must be located immediately after the tap on the City main with a swivel tee per Drawing No. 5.13 in the City of Boulder Design and Construction Standards (DCS). Correct this on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 4. There can be no more than 350 feet of fire access distance between hydrants and no exterior portion of any building shall be over 175 feet of fire access distance from the nearest hydrant. The proposed hydrant locations do not meet this requirement. Revise the hydrant locations to meet this requirement on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 5. On Utility A Sheet 6 of 21 the 8" sewer line under the proposed addition on the Southwest corner of building FA is to be replaced with cast iron pipe. This sewer line would need to be a private sewer service line and be the maintenance responsibility of Ball Aerospace. Label this line as private on all future Utility Plan submittals. 6. On Utility B Sheet 7 of 21 the proposed sewer service for new building is required to be perpendicular to the main and easement to the east of the proposed building. Correct this on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 7. On Utility B Sheet 7 of 21 there is an existing 6" VCP sewer line shown. Provide more information on what this sewer line is used for at Site Review. 8. On Utility A Sheet 6 of 21 the new fire hydrant run to the North of building FA is shown as lead pipe. Correct this on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 9. The type and size of all the proposed and existing utilities are not shown on the Utility Plan. Correct this on the Utility Pian needed for Site Review. s:\plan\pb-items~nemosU 6oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paee# 11 10. Include the location, dimensions, and dedication type of all existing and proposed easements and rights-of-way for all utilities improvements. Reference existing easements to appropriate recorded film and reception numbers. Public utility easements shall be at least 25 feet wide. Water meters need to be either located in public utility easements or public rights-of-way. Make these changes on the Utility Plan needed for Site Review. 11. Provide information at Site Review on the additional demand that will be placed on City water and sewer service by the additions and any plumbing fixtures or processes proposed therein. Depending on the intensification of use that is proposed, a Technical Document Utility Report may be required. 12. All proposed public utilities for this project shall be designed in accordance with the City of Boulder Design and Construction Standards (DCS). 13. The applicant should note that trees are not permitted within ten feet of underground utility lines. At Site Review, the applicant will need to demonstrate that their plans can meet both landscaping and utility requirements. 14. The existing utility easement on the North side of building FA and the drainage easement will need to be abandoned via an Administrative Public Utility Easement Vacation application. New easements for the fire hydrant runs, water meters and storm line will need to be dedicated as part of a Technical Document Right of Way/Easement Dedication application before the existing ones can be vacated. IV. NEXT STEPS Plan will be taken to Planning Board for Concept Plan Review and Comment on November 4, 2004. Planning Board, Staff and any "public comment: received are to be used by the applicant in completing the Site Review submittal. V. CITY CODE CRITERIA CHECKLIST Concept Plan Review and Comment criteria will be included in the Staff memo to Planning Board. VI. CONDITIONS ON CASE None, this is a Concept Review and comment. Comments made in this document and during the public hearing are intended to help the applicant respond to requirements for Site Review and reduce the number of conditions. s:\plan\pb-items\memosU 6oocommerceCPbb AGENDA ITEM # SD Paae# 12 ATTACHMENT D BALL A~ROSPACE - FISHER COMPLEX EXPANSION CONCEPT PLAN REVIEW - WRITTEN STATEMENT August 2, 2004 TiBe 9°Land Use Reeulation" develo~ment The location of this site provides a rich array of amenities including views of the mountains, proximity to Boulder Creek, and substantial open space on the northern side of the site. Site planning techniques have incorporated photo- simulations that project the proposed development on the neighboring areas and the ]imited effect the new conswction will have on the surrounding properties. The proposed building additions on the Fisher Campus and the new office building to the east of Commerce Street, together with the existing building square footage and proposed demolition, meet Boulder F.A.R. requirements of .5. There is ample maintained landscape space on-site and Ball encourages their employees to bike or walk to work. There are shower and locker facilities on- site, as well as mail service and fresh food vending. There is also an RTD bus stop directly south of the Fisher Campus along Arapahoe Road. The open space along the nortfiern edge oF the Fisher Campus is home to the Ball Employee Communiry Gardens. This area will remain throughout the development of the site. Al] proposed development is in accordance with the current zoning IG-E. A) Environmental Imoact Avoidance Preliminary conversations with the Ciry of Boulder have lead to the conclusion that due to the close proximiry to Boulder Creek, detention will not be required for the proposed expansion project. However, the need for water quality enhancement alone is detemvned on a case-by-case basis by the City. Since portions of the project lie within the floodplain, providing surface water quality is not effective unless there is a filtering system that would periodically be deaned of pollutants that collect during routine storm events. Then, presumably, during a major srorm event, flushing of the water quality system would not cause accumulated pollutants to be washed out. This subject will need to be further reseamhed wi[h the City. B) Travel demand manaeement Bike/Ped Trios Bicycling and walking to work will be encouraged by Ball Aerospace. Sheltered bicycle parking will be available on-site. Ball Aerospace allows a casual dress code which is conducive to walking to work; on-site showers and lockers will be available to employees so they can change clothes at the office, if that is preferable. Good connections to pedestrian/bicycle facilities are available on Arapahoe Road. Site-generated trips are expected to be reduced by two percent due to pedestrian and bicycle trips. Transit RTD bus service is available within easy walking distance of the site. The bus s[op serves five local and regional transit routes. In addition, Bal] Aerospace is a participant in the RTD ECO Pass transit subsidy program. Two percent of the total trips are expected to use transit on a regular basis. On-site Services and Site Location The Ball campus includes buildings with showers and ]ocker facili[ies, mail service, and fresh food vending. These services will encourage employees to remain on-site during their workday, rather than make unnecessary trips away from the site. The proximity of nearby residential neighborhoods (South of Arapahoe Road) may encourage employees to ]ive within walking distance of their office. The proximity of nearby retail, induding fast food restaurants, encourage walking trips over the lunch hour. These factors are assumed to reduce the site-generated trips by two percent. C) Existine and Proposed Land uses The proposed development is a net addition of 135,283 square feet to the Fisher Campus located at the northwest comer of Arapahoe Road and Commerce Street. Proposed uses include office, testing and assembly facilities, and mechanical and electrical spaces. There is a new 44,558 square foot building proposed ro the east of Commerce SVeet tha[ wili be office use only. This new building will take the place of the existing building in this location, which will be demolished.
