The City is leasing the majority of the project site for the development of a 130-room Lido House Hotel. The proposed hotel would also include meeting rooms, accessory retail spaces, a restaurant, lobby bar, rooftop bar, guest pool and recreational areas, and all required appurtenant facilities including, but not limited to on-site parking, landscaping, utilities, and adjoining public improvements. The hotel would be no larger than 98,725 gross square feet. The project would also provide 148 surface parking spaces and would accommodate additional parking through active parking management including valet parking service. The proposed structures would be approximately four-stories with architectural features up to 58.5-feet in height. The project would also include public open spaces consisting of pedestrian plazas, landscape areas, and other amenities proposed to be located along Newport Boulevard and 32nd Street. The project also includes the following discretionary actions: General Plan Amendment, Coastal Land Use Plan Amendment, Zoning Code Amendment, Site Development Review, Conditional Use Permit, Traffic Study, and a Ground lease. The project also includes relocating a portion of the existing, angled, metered parking on the north side of 32nd Street (just south of the old City Council Chambers) further to the east in front of St. James Church, which is located just west of Lafayette Road. Currently, there is excess street capacity along 32nd Street (just west of Lafayette Road) that would be modified in order to accommodate angled parking along the north side of 32nd Street in front of the church and travel lanes. This would also pull the curb line along the project site south and 32nd Street would be restriped with the intent to modestly "straighten" out the westbound traffic lane to improve vehicle maneuvering. The project site is not listed on a list of hazardous materials sites compiled pursuant to Government Code Section 65962.5.
