Document Description
The proposed project involves a request for approval of a 55-unit resort condominium hotel development within a 12.66-acre project site located on "Lot 2" east and adjacent to the existing Bacara Resort and Spa, and widening of the existing Hollister Avenue access. The resort condominium hotel units (suites) would range in size from approximately 2,300 to 2,900 square feet, and would be constructed within a total of nine (9) buildings with a building height of 35 feet from finished grade, plus up to an additional 6 feet for chimneys and raised roof extensions. Modifications to recommended standards for building intensity may be necessary. Additional proposed improvements include a pool, pool cabanas, resort support facilities, and guest parking. An underground parking garage with 113 spaces would accommodate hotel guest parking, and would also includes areas for resort services and storage. To accommodate the proposed improvements, the existing tennis club/maintenance building, four tennis courts, the 50-space public beach access parking lot, and the vertical public beach access trail would be relocated within the 12.66-acre project site on "Lot 2".
