Draft Initial Study
and Mitigated Negative Declaration
The Entrada at Malibu Canyon project was
approved by the City Council on August 1, 2007 for 86
residential units (condominiums) in three buildings over one
level of underground parking that connects the three
Approximately 16 of the 21 acres (75% of the site) was
dedicated open space.
Because of time extensions given by the State of
California, the approved project's entitlements (including
the approved tract map) will not expire until August 1,
Since the approval, the original applicant
(Standard Pacific Homes) sold the property as entitled to
Calabasas Blue. The
new owners have intended to construct the entitled project.
However, the owners are also considering a change to
the approved project to address many of the concerns
expressed by the public during the public hearing process
and to reduce some of the project's environmental impacts –
especially the site grading.
The re-working of the project design is expected to
also reduce the project construction costs, potentially
leading to a more successful project.
Calabasas Blue (also known as Blue Marble
Development Co.) proposes to change the project from 86
condominiums to 80 townhomes.
Other changes revealed in the submitted plans include
each unit having its own garage, rather than a shared
underground parking structure, 12 smaller buildings rather
than 3 large buildings, and a two-story appearance along Las
Virgenes rather than the three stories of the approved
project. The new
proposed project will leave the approved open space
set-aside intact (approximately 16 acres).
As of this written project update (dated
May 7, 2012), the amended project plans and accompanying
application materials and reports are incomplete.
Following completion of the plans, application, and
reports, a public hearing will be set before the Planning
Commission; and if this project would be approved by the
Planning Commission, it would replace the previously
If denied, however, then the previously approved
condominium project remains in place as entitled and could
still be constructed.
The proposed revised project requires a Mitigated
Negative Declaration to be prepared and it is expected that
the earliest that a public hearing could take place is
sometime in the fall of 2012.
