Planning Environmental Reports

Title: The Seacliff of Huntington Beach Inspired Senior Living (Assisted Living/Memory Care Facility)

Applicant: Joseph P. McGonigle, SBLP Huntington Beach, LLC

Location: 2120 Main Street

Report Summary

The City of Huntington Beach has prepared Draft MND No. 20-001 which analyzes the potential environmental impacts associated with  a proposal to construct a three-story, approximately 281,000 square foot State-licensed assisted living and memory care facility with 226 units and a subterranean parking garage on an approximately 6.57 acre portion of the approximately 11.29 acre existing Seacliff Office Park property. One of the five existing office buildings and the existing surface parking area on the southern portion of the project site would be demolished and replaced with the assisted living and memory care facility and subterranean parking garage. A surface parking area would be developed on an undeveloped area in the northeast portion of the project site. The project would also require the removal of a man-made water feature in the center of the Seacliff Office Park. The majority of the building is proposed at a maximum height of 44 ft., including parapet walls, and a corner tower element at maximum 50 ft. high.  Access to the site will be provided from two existing vehicular and pedestrian entries from Main Street, and a new entry from Seabluff Drive providing access to and from Yorktown Avenue. 

The proposed project requires the following entitlements: Conditional Use Permit to permit an approximately 281,000 sq. ft. assisted living facility on a lot with more than a 3 ft. grade differential, and a Type 47 ABC liquor-license; Tentative Parcel Map to subdivide the project site into four parcels; and Design Review to review the design, colors, and materials of the project.   

The Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration will be available for public review and comment for twenty (20) days commencing Thursday, September 10, 2020 and ending Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. on the City’s Environmental Reports Website at

Any person wishing to comment on the request may provide written comments to Hayden Beckman, Senior Planner, City of Huntington Beach, Community Development Department, P.O. Box 190, Huntington Beach, CA 92648 or [email protected] by September 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. 

Subsequent to the public comment period, a public hearing will be scheduled before the Planning Commission tentatively for October 2020.  The public hearing will be separately noticed.
