VALENCIA – A pair of office buildings planned for a prominent intersection near Six Flags Magic Mountain might be too tall, county officials say. But The Newhall Land and Farming Company this week will make its case that the buildings fit into an overall project that will remake the area’s look. The two four-story buildings are planned for a plateau by Magic Mountain Parkway and The Old Road. The buildings would be 80 feet tall, and the plateau is 65 feet higher than the intersection, according to county planning officials, who want the project to be redesigned. “There are no natural features that would lessen the impact of the project on the surrounding area,” the officials wrote in a report to the county Regional Planning Commission. The commission on Wednesday will review the project. In their report to the commission, county planners argued that the project is “out of character for the area due to height and mass.” That may be the case now, but from Newhall Land’s perspective the buildings fit just fine into its larger plan for the area, said Marlee Lauffer, spokeswoman for the company. Newhall Land wants to build a development called Entrada on hundreds of acres in the area, bringing in commercial space, offices, stores, restaurants and perhaps homes. County officials have pointed out that the office buildings will stand out to motorists going by on nearby Interstate 5. But Lauffer said other structures in the Santa Clarita Valley also are visible from the I-5. “It’s not an unusual height, and certainly fits in with the overall master plan for the area,” Lauffer said. If the project is approved, the developer could break ground for construction in the summer, and the office towers could be finished in a year. “We think it’s a great land-use plan, so we’re looking forward to presenting it to the commission,” Lauffer said. County planning officials say the project, which would be near several single-story restaurants, would bring needed jobs to an area that has many more homes than employment opportunities. But they have suggested that the project be redesigned so it is shorter and wider, which would make it stand out less.
