On Tuesday, the St. Helena City Council approved a residential project north of the Culinary Institute of America.

Jorge Hernandez plans to build an estate for his extended family, consisting of an 18,188-square-foot main house, a 4,222-square-foot guest house, and a 1,772-square-foot cottage. None of the buildings will be visible from neighboring properties.

A previous owner proposed a 10-lot subdivision known as Spring Mountain Estates on the site a few years ago, but it drew heavy criticism from neighbors. Those same neighbors have said they fully support the new project, which also drew praise from the Planning Commission.

    Their is a lot of land on the hill sides that isn't good for vineyard, this is land that should be used for houses.

    Its called "HIGHEST AND BEST USE" to use the language of real estate people.
