The approved Paxton Calabasas project was
submitted to plan check in March 2013, and is currently
under review by the Public Works Department and Building &
Safety Division. Because
of time extensions given by the State of California, the
approved projectís entitlements (including the approved
tract map) will not expire until October 22, 2016.
On October 11, 2012, the Commission
unanimously voted to adopt Resolution No. 2012-528,
approving File No. 120000364 and adopting the associated
Mitigated Negative Declaration to approve a 78-unit townhome
residential development on 5 acres of a 21 acre site (16
acres will remain open space).
A Mitigated Negative Declaration was
prepared for the new project and was made available for
public review on September 10, 2012; the review period ended
October 1, 2012.
On September 20, 2012, the Planning Commission reviewed the
project at a noticed public hearing and continued the
project for further discussion to the following Planning
Commission public hearing on October 11, 2012.
Since the Entrada at Malibu Canyon
project approval, the original applicant (Standard Pacific
Homes) sold the property as entitled to Calabasas Blue. The
new owners opted to 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 Ė especially the site
grading. The project re-design is expected to also reduce
the project construction costs, potentially leading to a
more successful project.
On April 4, 2012, Calabasas Blue (also
known as Blue Marble Development Co.) submitted a request to
modify their entitled 86-unit condominium project (known as
Entrada at Malibu Canyon) to an 80-unit townhome project
Through the review process, the number of units was
reduced to 78.
The proposed project was reviewed by the Development Review
Committee (DRC) on May 1, 2012.
On April 27, 2012, the Architectural Review Panel
(ARP) reviewed this project and made recommendations for
minor changes. The applicant resubmitted revised plans in
accordance with ARPís recommendations and returned to ARP on
July 27, 2012.
The project was deemed complete on July 5, 2012.
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
buildings. Approximately 16 of the 21 acres (75% of the
site) was dedicated open space.
