1 Station Area Plan Introduction & Draft Alternatives Review City Council Meeting - February 22, 2016

2 Project Background: California High-Speed Rail San Jose to San Fernando Valley Segment CHSRA will select preferred alignment on completion of the EIR in late 2017 or early Business Plan assumes that HSR will be in operation by 2026 Electrified Caltrain between San Francisco and San Jose (and potentially Gilroy) by

3 Project Background: Visioning process High-Speed Train Visioning Project from 2011 to 2012 Evaluation two locations for a Gilroy HSR station and several options for the configuration of the alignment Identify the best possible station location and alignment City Council and community identified Downtown as the preferred station location and favored modified at-grade vertical alignment 4

4 Project Background: Downtown Gilroy Station Area Plan Funded by grant from CHSRA to study and plan for HSR Downtown Purpose to identify opportunities and issues created by future HSR station and tracks in Downtown Gilroy and mitigate impacts and maximize opportunities 5

5 Amendment of Downtown Specific Plan Most effects of HSR will occur Downtown Project will amend land use and transportation portions of Downtown Specific Plan and other plans, as needed 6

6 Alternative Land Use and Circulation Plans Overview Alternative Plans: Illustrate three different approaches to address opportunities and impacts of high-speed rail in Downtown Basis for Alternative Plans: Opportunities and Constraints report Input from Technical Advisory Committee and Citizen Advisory Committee Community input via stakeholder interviews and community meeting 2

7 Request and Recommendation Request: Review of Draft Alternative Land Use Scenarios to identify aspects that would not be favorably considered under any circumstances. Recommendation: If any aspects of any of the Scenarios would not be favorably considered, direct staff to remove those aspects from the draft alternative plans. Planning Commission Recommendation: Analyze Draft Alternatives, as presented. 3

8 Components of Alternative Land Use and Circulation Plans Land Use Elements Gateway treatment locations Fire Station locations Arts Center locations Parks/Plazas Increased building heights Transportation Elements HSR alignment (vertical modified at-grade v. aerial) HSR platform location Potential HSR long-term parking locations Potential Downtown parking locations Street closures or extensions Depressed streets Enhanced bike connections 4

9 Potential Changes Building heights could increase to 5 or 6 stories throughout the area and increase to 10 to 12 stories east of HSR and south of Old Gilroy St. Increases to the amount of residential, retail, office and hotel development, mostly south of 7 th St. / Old Gilroy St. Expansion of auto mall Public or mixed use development on west side of Swanston Ln. Alternative locations for Arts Center 5

10 Potential Changes Long-term HSR parking facilities east of HSR and south of Old Gilroy St. Possible closure of Railroad St. and some east-west street connections New underpasses and depression of cross streets where east-west vehicle access maintained Easterly extension of 1 st St. to Murray Ave. Extension of Chestnut St. over Miller Slough Aerial alignment of HSR ft. 6

11 Alternatives Buildout Projection SCENARIO 1. TRANSIT FOCUS SCENARIO 2. DOWNTOWN FOCUS SCENARIO 3. EMPLOYMENT FOCUS Phase 1 (by 2025) Housing: 500 units Commercial: 100,000 SF Class A office: 100,000 SF Hotel: 100 rooms Industrial: 50,000 SF Housing: 800 units Commercial:165,000 SF Class A office: 100,000 SF Hotel: 100 rooms Housing: 600 units Commercial: 200,000 SF Class A office: 100,000 SF Hotel: 100 rooms Phase 2 (by 2040) Housing: 1,900 units Commercial: 400,000 SF Class A office: 650,000 SF Hotel: 400 rooms Industrial: 50,000 SF Housing: 2,400 units Commercial: 490,000 SF Class A office: 200,000 SF Hotel: 300 rooms Housing: 1,600 units Commercial: 600,000 SF Class A office: 1.0 million SF Hotel: 1,400 rooms [1] Phase II includes Phase I development. Commercial development includes both retail and small offices, such as law firm offices. [2] Buildout projections are based on the market assessment prepared by BAE and the projections in the 2005 Downtown Specific Plan. 7

12 Scenario 1: Transit Focus High-intensity dev. focused within walking distance of the HSR station. Least effect on the remaining Downtown area. Modified at-grade HSR alignment would close one east-west vehicle access and may eliminate Railroad St. Depressed streets may affect access to adjacent properties. HSR parking structures at three locations near highway interchanges. 8

13 Scenario 2: Downtown Focus Mixed use residential dev. spread out along Monterey St. and around the HSR station. Retail dev. (supporting DT) extending along east-west streets on both sides of Monterey St. Aerial alignment of HSR allows all existing east-west street connections to remain. Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) remains at the current location at grade. HSR parking structures at two locations near highway interchanges. 9

14 Scenario 3: Employment Focus Office dev. and multifamily housing within walking distance of the HSR station. Enhanced commercial corridor along Monterey, extending south of 10 th St. Area south of 10 th St. reserved for future R&D and office dev., a hotel/conference center, and HSR parking. Modified at-grade HSR alignment would keep all east-west vehicle access, requiring new underpasses and depression of cross streets. 10

15 Next Steps March to May, 2016: Alternatives analysis June 2016: CAC meeting and Community meeting 11

16 Questions or Comments?

18 HSR Vertical Alignment Options Aerial Alignment refers to the high-speed rail tracks supported on columns elevated approximately 30 to 35 feet above existing grade. Vertical Modified At-Grade Alignment: refers to the high-speed rail tracks on an earthen berm elevated approximately 20 feet above the existing grade. The existing Union Pacific rail tracks would similarly be elevated and realigned in some areas parallel to the high-speed rail tracks.
