Here is an excerpt from the previous article:
"The Museum House project is located in Newport Beach's Newport Center/Fashion Island area and the address is 850 San Clemente Drive. The developer, Related California Urban Housing, LLC. (Related), is proposing to construct a 26 story condominium tower consisting of 100 condominium residential units.
The proposed 26 story tower will stand 295 feet tall with another 20 feet for "...mechanical equipment and elevator overruns." (p. 9). This will make the total height of the tower 315 feet tall. According to the OC Register, the 520 Newport Center Drive tower from the Irvine Company is 315 feet tall. This tower is located within the Newport Center area and the proposed tower would be of equal height with the tallest tower in Newport Center area."...
According to the description from the agenda item, a presentation will be provided and no formal decision will be made. Furthermore, a draft of the environmental document for the project is planned to be released in Summer of this year where the public can review, as well as, comment on the project.
