With the old 76 gas station at 801 Pearl St. in La Jolla partially demolished and overgrown with weeds, could a change be in sight?
In July, an application for a building permit associated with a discretionary coastal development permit was filed with the city of San Diego to develop the property “and is currently under review,” according to the city spokesperson. , Scott Robinson. The proposed construction schedule was not immediately available.
The permit application indicates that the property would be developed into a mixed-use building comprising two retail spaces and 26 residential units, as well as parking and landscaping. Robinson said it was the same project for community review in 2019.
At the time, the La Jolla Town Planning Association voted to approve plans submitted by developer David Bourne to demolish the gas station and build a 20,595 square foot mixed-use structure. The two-story project has been described as 26 residential units (two of which are considered affordable housing), two commercial spaces on the ground floor and a plot with 23 parking spaces. Bourne passed away last year and the property has been in partially demolished condition since.
The new principal of the property, listed on the permit application as Rhonda Neely of Newport Beach-based C3 Development, did not return the La Jolla Light‘s calls for seeking more information. ??
