From the story that just posted online:

LAFAYETTE — The owner of a hillside overlooking Highway 24 wants to build a 315-unit apartment complex there, despite the City Council’s request the land be used only for single-family housing.

The development, called “The Terraces of Lafayette,” would be set on a 22-acre lot at the corner of Deer Hill Road and Pleasant Hill Road in Lafayette just north of Highway 24, known colloquially as the “Christmas tree Lot.”

The Dettmer family, which owns the property, submitted the project March 21. The city has not yet reviewed the application, said Lafayette Special Projects Manager Ann Meredith.
