Document Description
The proposed project is a sublease from FelCor Hotel Asset Company, LLC (FelCor) dba Wyndham San Diego Bayside (Wyndham) to Claim Jumper Acquisition Company, LLC (Claim Jumper) for operation of a three-meal restaurant at the Wyndham. FelCor's existing leasehold is comprised of approximately 276,910 square feet of land area located at 1355 North Harbor Drive in the City of San Diego. FelCor operates the 600-room Wyndham at this site, including meeting space, restaurants, retail, and parking. The FelCor lease commenced on September 13, 1977, and expires on October 14, 2029. Through a sublease with FelCor, Elephant & Castle (E&C) operated a full-service (three-meal) restaurant at the Wyndham from approximately 1995-2014. The E&C restaurant occupied approximately 7,200 square feet of indoor space on the first floor of the Wyndham, along with the adjacent approximately 2,600 square-foot outdoor patio area. The E&C restaurant had a total capacity of approximately 339 seats, including 196 indoor seats and 143 outdoor seats. The space has continuously been offered for restaurant uses. The proposed sublease would allow Claim Jumper to operate a three-meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) casual dining restaurant within the existing restaurant space formerly occupied and operated by E&C, including approximately 7,200 square feet of space on the first floor of the Wyndham with 196 seats and the adjacent 2,600-square-foot outdoor patio area with 143 seats.
