405 Lincoln Focused EIR
City of Palo Alto, California
405 Lincoln Focused EIR for the City of Palo Alto. Wagstaff/MIG is currently preparing a focused EIR for the proposed redevelopment of a residential property at 405 Lincoln Avenue in the City's Professorville National Register Historic District. To assess the historic resource impacts of the project, Wagstaff/MIG has subcontracted Garavaglia Architecture, Inc., experienced historic preservation, restoration and adaptive use architects and planners. The property owners are proposing to demolish an existing, essentially intact, Spanish Colonial Revival residential structure at the address, which is listed on the National Register as a building that contributes to the historic character of the Professorville District, and construct new contemporary structure. The EIR will describe applicable federal, state and local historic resource protection provisions, and the conclusions of a historic resources impact evaluation by Garavaglia Architecture, with regard to the historic character-defining features of the property and the impacts of the proposed demolition. The EIR will also include identification and comparative evaluation of an alternative design concept by Garavaglia Architecture that retains and adapts the existing structure for re-use. The Draft EIR is scheduled for release in mid-July 2009; Final EIR certification is scheduled for late September 2009.
