Document Description
The project proposes to construct 269 residential units and 13 new hotel rooms, to reconstruct a hotel pool, and to reconstruct a clock tower on the main, historic hotel building which would remain on-site. The existing structures on the southern half of the project site would be demolished, and the new housing would be in two building types. A four-story building, approximately 50 feet in height, would include 54 affordable housing units. A second four-story building, approximately 50 feet in height, would consist of four, two-bedroom townhouses. A third, seventeen-story high-rise, approximately 172 feet in height, would include 211 housing units. In addition, a new, two-story hotel building would be constructed adjacent to the reconstructed pool. The total building area, excluding parking but including the existing hotel, would be approximately 357,241 sf. The proposed project would also construct a three-level subterranean parking garage of approximately 180,681 sf of subterranean parking in three levels. A Site Development Permit would be required for this project for development within the Mid-Cities Planned District Ordinance (PDO) that would deviate from the PDO regulations. In this case, the proposed project would deviate from the required setbacks, height limit, floor area ratio, lot coverage, and density. A Tentative Map would be required to allow for the proposed condominium development.
