1:32 pm
december 18th, melvin we're back again, because circumstances have changed with the delay and transfer with the hunters point shipyard as well as unfortunately, the 49ers have moved to santa clara that creates an earlier delivery of candle stick land that is a burden to the city in terms of maintenance and certain liebltd if 23 accept the structure with that, i'd like to ask ethan the assistant to talk about the terms of the agreement. >> this is his first presentation before you. >> good afternoon, commissioners director bohe i'm the assistant project manager here to talk about the phase two at hunters point shipyard candle
1:33 pm
stick ambassador before i jump in i want to give you a brief overview like the director mentioned the phasing has changed the transfer to the navy lands at the hunters point shipyard has been detailed i'm sure you're aware of the 49ers left candle stick park they were going to be here until 2023 so the stadium has been accelerated to make sure the project 34068d move forward and the transfer must be adjusted to allow ocii to transfer the entire stadium site to lenore i want to stress throughout this presentation the proposed changes are a different way of achieving the same outcome. so the project site to give you complexity e context, you know, is comprised of two landmasses
1:34 pm
that are hunters point shipyard and candle stick point i've identified in the lower left the stadium site the focus of today's discussion alice griffith is north of that and the navy land hunters point shipyard to the north of that. so also some phrases i'm going to be using sub phase a reminder to the commission a major is the larger sub areas dlaefltd by the corresponds in the diaphragm and 4 major phases between the project site repealed on each hunters point shipyard and candle stick point and then sub phases are sub areas of the major phases xhierptd of 4 to 6 blocks when the applications are submitted to ocii. and when i wanted to show with
1:35 pm
this slide hearsay the project that reflects the revised phasing in john january of this year i want to point out you see the stadium site when is the eggshell color in the lower left hand corner it's major phase one and something else that large pink up firefighter north is major phase 4 and again is the direct result that the navy has the land and taking mediation at the sites. so this is the land use pattern for the project you have the yellow and orange for the residential again 10 thousand 5 hundred unit the blue showing commercial in the hunters point shipyard site and red is retail that's i'll get into that that's
1:36 pm
centered around the existing stumd site and open space you'll see a lot of the parks and open space is located within the large pink area i've identified he hunters point shipyard this is under the navy's control all the parks is down at candle stick. so the revised phasing plan includes the c p center we'll call sub phases o-3 and 04 those are included in the projects next phase of development and all of c p center the next sub phases are within the stadium site together it includes 6 hundred and 75 thousand of retail and up to 3 hundred and
1:37 pm
94 affordable housing and the local serving hotels and c p center is one of the primary anchors of the candle stick point portion of the project. those diaphragms illustrate a lot of what i've said on the left you see there are a number of sub phases located within the stumd site so c po 2 is the wedge on the left hand and surround by organizations 3 and o 04 there are a number of sub phases entirely or partially located within the stumd site the right hand is what the project will look like an diaphragm and all the red and lighter dusty rose in the stumd
1:38 pm
site >> core rum. >> is the original retail and the residential use in the yellow surrounding that. in order to get from here to there there's a number of steps to be taken. so that includes the land has to be transferred in a number of stakeholders and in the stadium has to be transferred to ocii pursuant pursuant to another agreement it's opposed by the city and state primarily and the next large thing to happen lamar has to to demolish the stadium the stadium is left vacant it has a cost to the city and developments demolition is estimate and abatement will cost up to $30 million so we don't
1:39 pm
know up to $130,000 lamar has to summit and ocii has to approve the applications in the various contracts. so given everything i'll told you ocii things supports the implementation of the project to transfer the entire stadium site to lenore prior to the demolition of the stadium this is different a different approach for the transfer los angeles police department this is contemplated but for the following reasons it's the best approach the city and ocii will transfer the costs with the demolition over to lenore. the entire stadium site will begin to accrue tax equities and
1:40 pm
if they were to be entirely moved to private ownership and lastly for the timeline for the completion of the c p center the occasion has to occur first, the current smith's of applications we'll line up demolishing the stadium so begin the infrastructure and development to support that development without delay. so the stumd site is subject to specific requirements because it's currently considered open space promotion c requires there be a biden demolition to respect the land with an equal amount of open space within the site. we're calling items the majority of parks and open space is again
1:41 pm
located at hunters point shipyard because the spaces at candle stick point is city owned. so section 10.3.2 h provides the framework for the requirement ever a of a binding obligation when the transfer happens it requires that lamar must be completing the equal amount of the stadium being transferred if not completed they must provide adequate security like a bond in the amount to equal to the size of the stadium being i ask you
1:42 pm
to spend time it's a lot of words again, i want to suppress the important requirement we're meeting and the biden obligation in participation g a number of ways to meet the proposition g requirement the way it is done in section that i read to you was the way that made sense at the time the document was drafted by again, it's one of the many ways that proposition g can be satisfied. with that, in mind the second amendment provides an alternative amendment to the obligation to say a rault result of the phasing plan but insures that the proposition is transferred to lenore that
1:43 pm
lenore will meet the same requirements as required before undertaking the project and there's a benefit to ocii to the city and again which was required by the dissolution law. so with the second amendment for the construction lenore will demolish the stadium if 2015 and only use the stadium for the uses to demolish the stadium as approved by ocii. so we'll come to ocii with the subsequent uses and determine whether or not their appropriate and they'll be obligated to summit the applications to ply with the proposition g requirement.
1:44 pm
what the second amendment did is insure we are he meeting the requirement one is the d restriction is placed on the whole stadium it be removed in phases to restrict the limited uses as approved and the quit claim deed my approval to are returned to ocii if lamar can't complete their obligation in lenore walks away before it's complete the los angeles police department will be transferred by to ocii in the same condition and will constitute a return to the open space to the city compliant with proposition g and at the time lamar is granted an
1:45 pm
approval they'll provide additional park security that provides the wherewith all if they're unable to complete your construction and additional the park security is a financial obligation collateral has a bond or corporate guarantee it does now that you've come in you've changed the nature of the land it can't be returned back to the same condition therefore they have the money to rebuild the parks for whatever reason. so as required by itself dissolution law it must benefit the tax amenities the two ways the future by providing for a
1:46 pm
transfer to the - by increasing the land school district u subject to the transfer. and last also the can advance removed if the 73 city and county as well as the liability resulting from the liability and the ownership of the site. so in summary the project was revised and the demonstration of c p center is the next development plan and green before completing that land must be transfer to ocii and lamar a must demolish the stadium it benefits ocii and benefits the city and other tax amenities and allows for the outcome we're looking for in building the
1:47 pm
project and the second amendment better result ocii to transfer the entire transfer to lenore and makes sure accident requirement are met at the time of transfer. so next steps. upon approval of the commission if we have that granted the originate board will be there on september 2nd and go to the california department of finance and we'll transfer the land to lenore in the fall of 2015 and gun construction in 2015. that's all i have i have members of the lamar team available here to answer questions >> do we have any speaker cards. >> we've got two speaker cards
