A new Spanish colonial revival-style duplex is on its way to construction at the cul-de-sac of Boca de la Playa in North Beach.
The Planning Commission Wednesday approved the 5,385-square-foot building, designed by architect Timothy Wilkes, said Commissioner Nesa Anderson. The building still must be approved by the San Clemente City Council.
Set to be built on a steeply sloping vacant lot, the three-story duplex is one lot back from the coastal bluff, facing the Ole Hanson Beach Club across the street.
Story poles have been erected to show residents how tall the building will be.
