The Murdy Commons Mixed-Use Project proposes development of up to 984 dwelling units and 60,000 square feet of commercial area on a 12.5-acre site consisting of four contiguous parcels located at the northeast corner of Edinger Avenue and Gothard Street. All existing improvements on the project site would be demolished.
Project improvements involve the development of six blocks connected by a network of new streets and sidewalks oriented around a centrally located 0.75-acre public open space area. Development on each block would consist of four- to six-story buildings with three to five floors of one and two bedroom apartment units over street level live/work or retail units. A total of 1,979 parking spaces would be provided on the project site in subterranean and above-grade parking structures as well as surface parking spaces along the proposed new streets. In addition, on-street parallel parking spaces are proposed on Gothard Street along the project site's frontage. Other project features include a new frontage road with angled parking spaces and pedestrian walkways along Edinger Avenue, infrastructure/utility improvements and consolidation of project site parcels. The proposed project is located within the Beach and Edinger Corridors Specific Plan (BECSP), adopted in April 2010.
