Applications for a Development Review Permit (DR2022-6), Variance (V2022-4), and Supplemental Environmental Checklist and Addendum (AEIS2022-6) for the Excel Hotel (project). The project is a four-story, 97-guestroom hotel on a 1.6-acre lot located at 381 Town Center Parkway in the Town Center (TC) Zone and Art and Entertainment Overlay District. The project includes the construction of the hotel with an outdoor patio containing fire pits, a barbeque area, and an outdoor pool. Hotel amenities include a dining room, fitness room, guest laundry, and a business center. The subject property is surrounded by Town Center Parkway to the north, Santee Trolley Square businesses to the south, a parking lot and Riverview Parkway to the east, and a San Diego Metropolitan Transit System transportation hub to the west. Due to extraordinary site circumstances, the project includes a variance request to reduce the parking requirement and required building setback for the proposed development. On April 26, 2023, the City Council approved and adopted Supplemental Environmental Checklist and Addendum AEIS2022-6, approved Development Review Permit DR2022-6 and approved the Variance request V2022-4.
