At Monday’s Pasadena City Council meeting, the council heard a pre-development plan of a 980,000 square foot mixed-use project proposed for construction at the Parsons Corporation headquarters parking lots at 100 West Walnut Street.

The report was prepared by the planning department to provide information about a proposed development and no action was taken.

The project proposed by Lincoln Properties encompasses two parcels associated with the Parsons headquarters and seeks to construct almost one million square foot mixed-use development project at the site. The plan would retain the existing 12-story office building and replace the surrounding surface parking lots with new residential, office, and retail development.

Included in the proposed new development are three commercial (office) buildings and four residential buildings with a total of 400 residential units. Each building is expected to be five or six stories in height. Parking is also proposed to be within a new three-level subterranean parking garage.

This project will take years to complete and will require a legislative approval involving public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council. In addition, an Environmental Impact Review (EIR) will be necessary.

Among the next steps in the process include: Preliminary Consultation with Design Commission, Preparation of Initial Study, Public Scoping Meetings, Preparation of an EIR, Planning Commission Meetings, City Council Public Meetings, and Design Commission  reviews.
