Document Description
Demolition and site preparation for construction of a 16,729 sf, two-story building containing 22 guest rooms and ancillary hotel/event facilities. A second building would be a two-story, 5,894 sf building with 10 guest rooms. A two-level, below grade parking garage (8,322 sf on each level) with 56 parking stalls and 27 bicycle parking spaces is proposed, and four surface spaces. The proposed project also includes renovation of an existing Victorian structure, including seismic improvements, construction of a new foundation and a slight reorientation of the structure. The existing nine rooms in the Victorian house would be retained as guest rooms. In total, the proposed hotel would include 41 guest rooms (9 existing guest rooms and 32 new guest rooms). 6,950 cubic yards of grading (export). Access from El Salto Drive and Escalona Drive.
