Former Chipotle co-CEO Montgomery Moran, who stepped down from his role in the burrito chain in December 2016, looks to add 4000 square feet on to his La Jolla home at 7348 Vista Del Mar Avenue.
Last month, the city of San Diego notified local residents of Moran's intentions to add to his home which is located in La Jolla's posh Barber Tract community, near the vacation home of former governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
According to the city's notice, Moran, who purchased the former home of UC San Diego co-founder Roger Revelle in 2012, plans to add 1607 square foot addition as well as add 2916 square feet to the basement. Lastly, the remodel will feature an additional 832 square feet in deck space and new landscaping.
In December of last year Chipotle founder Steve Ells announced that Moran was stepping down from his role as co-CEO, a position that Moran had been in since 2009. The announcement came as the burrito chain struggled to right itself after reports of food-borne illnesses at several chain restaurants. Prior to 2009 Moran had served as Chipotle's president and then chief operating officer.
According to a Union-Tribune report, Moran paid $8.5 million for the house in 2012.
Upon review, staff determined that the project will not have any significant impact on the environment.
