Document Description
Site Development Permit (SDP) and Vesting Tentative Map (VTM) to allow the construction of a mixed-use development located immediately south of the existing, historic Lafayette Hotel. The project site is a 2.38-acre site, encompassing an entire city block bounded by El Cajon Blvd., Mississippi and Louisiana Streets, and Howard Avenue. The project proposes the development of a 4- to 17-story, 290,426-sf multi-residential condominium building that would house 42 affordable units and 229 market rate units. It also proposes the development of a two-story, 9,843 sf hotel building that would house eight hotel units, with the remaining seven hotel units located in the condominium building. A three-level, subterranean parking garage would be constructed underneath these structures, providing 500 parking spaces. Additionally, the project reconstruct the existing swimming pool and clock tower located at the Lafayette Hotel. A SDP would be required for this project for development within the Mid-Cities Planned District Ordinance, from which the project would deviate in setbacks, height limits, floor area ratio, lot coverage, and density. A VTM would be required for the proposed condominium development.
