The California Coastal Commission's staff is recommending that the commission reject plans to build a condominium complex near the Bolsa Chica area, saying the project is too dense for that area and should be scaled down. The 252-unit condo project, called Surfcrest North, is proposed for the Seacliff Country Club area, near the intersection of Palm Avenue and Seapoint Street. It would consist of six three-story buildings.
