SEC. 249.79.  PIER 70 SPECIAL USE DISTRICT.
   (a)   Purpose and Boundaries. To facilitate the City’s long-term goal of redevelopment and revitalization of a portion of Pier 70, a Special Use District entitled the “Pier 70 Special Use District” (SUD) is hereby established. The boundaries of the SUD are shown on Sectional Map SU08 of the Zoning Map. The purpose of this SUD is to give effect to the Development Agreement (DA) and Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) for the Pier 70 Mixed-Use Project (Project), as approved by the Board of Supervisors in the Ordinance contained in Board File No. 170863. The Project will provide several benefits to the City, such as a significant amount of affordable housing (through the inclusionary housing requirements of this SUD, and through additional inclusionary requirements, provision of land, and funding for affordable housing as provided for in the Affordable Housing Exhibit of the DDA), increased public access and open space, facilities for small-scale manufacturing, extensive infrastructure improvements, and replacement space for Noonan Building tenants, while creating jobs, housing, and a vibrant community as contemplated under California Assembly Bill 418 (AB 418) (Stats. 2011, ch. 477), which made Pier 70-specific amendments to the Burton Act (Stats. 1969, ch. 1333).
   (b)   Role of Port Commission. The majority of the property within the SUD is under the jurisdiction of the Port Commission, and Port lands are subject to land use controls additional to this Municipal Code. As authorized under AB 418, the Port may hold, use, conduct, operate, maintain, manage, administer, regulate, improve, sell, lease, encumber, and control nontrust lands and improvements within the SUD for any purpose on conditions specified in AB 418. In the event of a conflict between this Code and the Burton Act, AB 418, or the McAteer-Petris Act (Cal. Gov’t Code §§ 66600 et seq.), state law shall prevail.
   (c)   Relationship to Design for Development. The Pier 70 Design for Development (Design for Development), adopted by the Planning Commission and Port Commission and as may be periodically amended, sets forth Standards and Guidelines applicable within the SUD and is incorporated here by reference.

Other than as specified above, the Port Commission and the Planning Commission may amend the Design for Development upon initiation by either body or upon application by an owner or ground lessee of property within the SUD, to the extent that such amendment is consistent with this Section, the General Plan, and the DA. Both the Port Commission and Planning Commission shall approve any such amendment to the Design for Development that does not exclusively affect the open space and right-of-way Chapters and Sections of the Design for Development identified in this subsection (c) as being within the exclusive jurisdiction of the Port Commission.
   (d)   Relationship to Other Planning Code Provisions. Applicable provisions of the Planning Code shall control except as otherwise provided in this Section 249.79, the Design for Development, and the DA (so long as the DA is in effect). In the event of a conflict between other provisions of the Planning Code and the Design for Development or this Section 249.79 (and further subject to subsection (e) below), this Section 249.79 and the Design for Development shall control.
   (e)   Development Controls. Development and uses of property within the SUD shall be regulated by the controls contained in this Section 249.79 and in the Design for Development, provided, however, that if there is any inconsistency between this Section and the Design for Development, this Section shall control.
   (f)   Definitions. If not explicitly superseded by definitions established in this Section 249.79 or the Design for Development, the definitions in this Code shall apply. Later amendments to the definitions in this Code shall apply where not in conflict with this Section 249.79, the Design for Development, or the DA.

   (l)   Design Review and Approval of Vertical Improvements.
      (1)   Applications. Applications for design review are required for all Vertical Improvements prior to issuance of building permits. An application for design review shall be filed at the Port by the owner or authorized agent of the owner of the property for which the design review is sought. Each application shall include the documents and materials necessary to determine consistency with this Section and the Design for Development, including site plans, sections, elevations, renderings, landscape plans, and exterior material samples to illustrate the overall concept design of the proposed buildings. If an Applicant requests a Major or Minor Modification, the application shall contain descriptive material such as narrative and supporting imagery, if appropriate, that describes how the proposed Vertical Improvement meets the intent of the SUD and Design for Development and provides architectural treatment and public benefit that are equivalent or superior to strict compliance with the standards.
      (2)   Completeness. Port and Planning staff shall review the application for completeness and advise the Applicant in writing of any deficiencies within 30 days after receipt of the application or, if applicable, within 15 days after receipt of any supplemental information requested pursuant to this Section. Review by Port staff shall also include a review for compliance with the requirements of the applicable Vertical DDA (or, if the Vertical DDA has not been executed at the time of application submittal, for compliance with the requirements of the form of Vertical DDA approved by the Board of Supervisors and the information provided in Developer’s applicable Appraisal Notice submitted under the DDA).
      (3)   Staff Design Review of Buildings. Each application for Vertical Improvements shall be subject to the administrative design review process set forth in this subsection (l). Upon a determination of completeness (or deemed completeness), staff shall conduct design review and prepare a staff report determining compliance of the Vertical Improvement with this Section 249.79 and the Design for Development, including a recommendation regarding any modifications sought. Such staff report shall be delivered to the Applicant and any third parties requesting notice in writing, shall be kept on file, and posted on the Department’s website for public review, within 60 days of the determination of completeness.
      If staff determines that the Vertical Improvement is not compliant with the Design for Development and this Section 249.79, it will notify the Applicant within the applicable 60-day period, in which case, the Applicant may resubmit the Application and the requirements under subsection (l)(1) through subsection (l)(3) apply anew, except the time for staff review shall be 30 days.
      (4)   Port Review of Historic Buildings. Following the informational presentation by the Developer and receipt of comments, if any, from the Planning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission pursuant to subsection (j) above, Port staff shall review schematic designs for each Historic Building in accordance with the procedures set forth in the ground lease between Port and the Applicant for the applicable Historic Building. Port staff review shall include a determination of consistency with the Design for Development and applicable mitigation measures, including compliance with Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties.
      (5)   Off-Street Parking. It is the intent of this SUD that at full build-out of all parcels in the SUD, the total number of off-street parking spaces within the SUD shall not exceed the applicable maximum parking ratios specified in Table 249.79(h)(4) above. The maximum parking ratios shall not apply to individual Vertical Improvements or parcels, but shall be considered cumulatively for the SUD as a whole. As part of the Phase Submittal process required under the DDA and discussed in subsection (j) above, the Port shall refer to the Planning Director for approval the parking data information submitted by the developer setting forth the total number of residential units and total gross floor area of office space for the proposed phase and for all prior approved phases (without regard to whether or not the Buildings have been constructed) along with an updated estimate of maximum future buildout of residential units and office spaces within the SUD. For Phases 1 and 2, the Phase Submittal may exceed the maximum parking ratios for proposed and previously approved parking spaces by up to 10%, provided the cumulative buildout for that phase does not exceed 90% of the expected full buildout within the SUD for either residential units or office space. For Phases thereafter, the Planning Director may determine whether to allow a 10% deviation above the maximum parking ratios allowed for the SUD, taking into account the expected Project program at full build-out. To ensure compliance with the maximum parking ratios on a periodic basis during the phased build-out of the SUD, Planning shall not otherwise approve new off-street parking proposed within a Vertical Improvement if it determines that the amount of off-street parking proposed for the Vertical Improvement would cause the SUD to exceed the total number of parking spaces approved under the current Phase Submittal plus all prior approved Phase Submittals.
      (6)   Approvals and Public Hearings for New Development.
         (A)   New Construction. Within 20 days after the delivery and posting of the staff report in accordance with subsection (l)(3), the Planning Director shall approve or disapprove the Vertical Improvement design and any Minor Modifications based on its compliance with this Section 249.79 and the Design for Development and the findings and recommendations of the staff report. If the Vertical Improvement is consistent with the numeric standards set forth in this Section 249.79 and the Design for Development, the Planning Director’s discretion to approve or disapprove the Vertical Improvement shall be limited to the Vertical Improvement’s consistency with the non-numeric elements of the Design for Development and the General Plan. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Section 249.79, the Planning Director may refer an Application that proposes modification to the non-numeric elements of the Design for Development, even if not otherwise classified as a Major Modification, to the Planning Commission as a Major Modification if the Planning Director determines that the proposed modification does not meet the intent of the Standards set forth in the Design for Development.
         (B)   Vertical Improvements Seeking Major Modifications. Upon delivery and posting of the staff report under subsection (l)(3), the Planning Commission shall calendar the item for a public hearing within 20 days or at the next regular meeting thereafter of the Planning Commission (or special meeting, at the Planning Commission’s discretion), subject to any required noticing, for any application for Vertical Improvements seeking one or more Major Modifications and for any Vertical Improvement seeking Minor Modifications that the Planning Director, in his or her sole discretion, refers as a Major Modification. The Planning Commission shall consider all comments from the public and the recommendations of the staff report and the Planning Director in making a decision to approve or disapprove the Vertical Improvement design, including the granting of any Major or Minor Modifications.
         (C)   Notice of Hearings. Notice of hearings required by subsection (B) above shall be provided as follows:
            (i)   by mail not less than 20 days prior to the date of the hearing to the Vertical Improvement applicant, to property owners within 300 feet of the exterior boundaries of the property that is the subject of the application, using for this purpose the names and addresses as shown on the citywide assessment roll in the Office of the Tax Collector, and to any person who has requested such notice; and
            (ii)   by posting on the subject property at least 10 days prior to the date of the hearing.
   (m)   Building Permit Approval. For projects subject to the jurisdiction of the Port, the Chief Harbor Engineer shall review each building permit application for consistency with the authorizations granted pursuant to this Section 249.79. For projects outside the jurisdiction of the Port, DBI shall review each permit application for consistency with the authorizations granted pursuant to this Section 249.79. The Chief Harbor Engineer and DBI shall not issue any building permit for work within the SUD that has not obtained design review approval in accordance with subsections (l)(6)(A) and (B) above to the extent applicable, or is inconsistent with standards in this Section 249.79 or the Design for Development.
   (n)   Change of Use. Before issuing any building permit or other permit or license, or for a permit of Occupancy that would authorize a new use, a change of use or maintenance of an existing use of any land or structure contrary to the provisions of this Section 249.79 or the Design for Development, the Chief Harbor Engineer or DBI, as applicable, shall refer the matter to the Planning Department for a consistency determination to be provided to the Chief Harbor Engineer or DBI, as applicable, within 15 days of referral.
   (o)   Discretionary Review. No requests for discretionary review shall be accepted by the Planning Department or heard by the Planning Commission for any Building in the SUD.
