Draft Environmental Impact Report For San Jose Flea Market General Plan Amendment and Planned Development Rezoning

"The approximate 120-acre project site is located at 1590 Berryessa Road in the City of San Jose, and is the current location of the San Jose Flea Market and the planned future location of the Berryessa Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Station. The project site is comprised of eight parcels located on both the north and south sides of Berryessa Road.

The project proposes map and text amendments to the City of San Jose General Plan and rezoning that would allow for the future development of residential, combined industrial/commercial, and commercial uses on the project site. The amendment to the City of San Jose General Plan Land Use/Transportation Diagram proposed by the project would increase the acreage of land designated Transit Corridor Residential (20+ DU/AC) and decrease the acreage of land designated Combined Industrial/Commercial on the project site, and allow future development on the project site with a Flexible Land Use Boundary. The text amendment to the General Plan proposed by the project would revise Urban Design Policy 10 of the General Plan to increase the maximum building height limit on the project site south of Berryessa from 120 feet to 150 feet and would revise Appendix E of the General Plan to downgrade Sierra Road from a four-lane Major Collector to a two-lane Major Collector from Flickinger Avenue to Berryessa Road and to add a Major Collector on the project site from Mabury to Berryessa Road.

The project would rezone the project site to A(PD) Planned Development Zoning District, which would allow the development of up to 215,622 square feet of industrial and/or commercial building space north of Berryessa, up to 152,700 square feet of commercial space south of Berryessa, and a combined total of 2,818 dwelling units north and south of Berryessa. Conversely, the minimum amount of development that could occur on the project site is a total of 2,580 dwelling units, 71,874 square feet of industrial and/or commercial building space north of Berryessa and a minimum of 91,000 square feet of commercial space south of Berryessa. The only commercial uses proposed south of Berryessa must be incorporated with residential into a mixed-use configuration."
