Patata Street Industrial Development EIR

Ascent is completing an EIR for a state-of-the-art modern industrial warehouse and distribution facility in the City of South Gate. The project involves the construction of an approximately 450,000 square foot warehouse with cold storage that is designed to be certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold with roof-mounted solar PV arrays. The building includes over 50 dock-high truck doors for loading and unloading, as well as high-speed roll-up doors to accommodate loading/unloading side-loader delivery trucks inside the warehouse. The delivery fleet of trucks and vans would be comprised of 100 percent electric vehicles (to be phased in over time), and the material handling equipment would be fully electric, supported by onsite charging and a battery energy storage system to capture the power generated from the PV solar arrays. The project also features an on-site maintenance facility for repairs involving the fleet of delivery vehicles. The project includes several transportation demand management features and would extend a 10-foot-wide trail connection to the Los Angeles River from the terminus of Patata Street.

The City initially retained Ascent to conduct a peer review of the Draft EIR that was prepared by another consultant, including numerous technical studies (air quality, GHG emissions, noise, and transportation), to include recommendations to improve the document. Following the public review period, which yielded numerous complex comments from stakeholder agencies, the City requested that Ascent complete the Final EIR, including conducting revised technical studies, evaluating and responding to comments, and revising portions of the EIR (air quality/health risk, GHG, energy, land use, noise, and transportation).

The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
