Tsuda, Zoning Administrator <br /> <br />SUBJECT: JULY 14,1994 STUDY SESSION-REVIEW OF SITE PLAN FOR <br />SILICON GRAPHICS CAMPUS AND ADJOINING PUBLIC PARK <br /> <br />RECOMMEND A nON <br /> <br />Review and comment on the conceptual site plan for the Silicon Graphics campus <br />and the adjoining public park. <br /> <br />BACKGROUND AND ANALYSIS <br /> <br />As the City Council is aware, staff and Silicon Graphics are currently negotiating <br />agreements for the development of the Farmer's field site. Concurrently, Silicon <br />Graphics (SGI) and staff are working on designs for the 21.6-acre SGI development <br />and the adjoining 5-acre public park. <br /> <br />The purpose of this item is to brief City Council on the development issues and <br />status of the design for the SGI project, and to allow Council an opportunity to <br />provide input at an early stage. At the study session, SGI's design team will present <br />a conceptual site plan for the campus development. The designs are preliminary <br />and continue to be revised and refined. SGI will be presenting site plans; elevations <br />have not been developed at this time. <br /> <br />The Site Plan and Architectural Review (SPAR) Committee informally reviewed <br />the project at their meeting of June 30, 1994. The SPAR Committee was supportive <br />of the overall design. Staff and the SPAR Committee have made the following <br />general comments on the design: <br /> <br />1. Improve the entryway treatment to the site. <br /> <br />2. Improve integration between the park and campus along the site's northerly <br />property line. <br /> <br />3. Evaluate alternatives to the location of the cafetorium/ entry building. <br /> <br />4. Evaluate the massing of the northerly building group. <br /> <br />1/14Jq~- 0TAff fef~1AnOf'\ ~ 14l11NULr tlsCMsSrON. <br />~. <br /> <br />t-tl MTJDN <br />
