The city’s Development Services Department notified residents and businesses in Kearny Mesa that a second, 14-story tower in the Sunroad Enterprises complex is up for review in the coming weeks, but that the project might not pass muster because — like the company’s first building — its height exceeds federal height limits.

According to the notice, the city’s development staff will review plans for a 200-foot-tall building and an accompanying seven-level parking garage to see that it complies with land-use regulations sometime after June 30.

The notice indicates that the proposal could be turned down because Sunroad hasn’t provided the city with a waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration saying that the project won’t be a hazard to nearby planes at Montgomery Field airport.

The decision will be made by city staff without a public hearing, but the decision can be appealed to the citywide Planning Commission, the notice said.
