Document Description
The project is an amendment to the existing Seabiscuit Pacifica Specific Plan No. SP 13-02. The original project was approved in 2014 and allowed two hotels, a Marriott Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn and Suites, with a total of 210 rooms, and a hotel condo tower with 50 units. The project will be completed in two phases - phase 1 will consist of the two hotels (four and six stories respectively) with hotel surface parking. Phase 2 will consist of a mixed use tower to replace the previously approved hotel condo tower, garage parking, and condo surfacing parking. Phase 2 will have ground floor commercial/retail and eight floors to include 9 townhouses, 36 condos, 5 penthouses, and subterranean parking. The mixed use tower will have a max height of 98 ft including the penthouse architecture. During phase 1, a portion of the existing hotel will be demolished, but 63 units will remain in operation until the start of phase 2 construction, at which time the remaining hotel buildings will be demolished. The amendment does not alter the site plan or the phases already approved, nor does it make any physical changes. The change requested is to modify the use described as phase 2 from a hotel condo project to a mixed use project. Instead of 50 hotel condo units, there will be 50 residential units and a ground floor retail/commercial component of 6,792 sf. A general plan amendment is requested to change the land use designation from commercial to downtown mixed use to facilitate this change, and to revise the downtown overlay of 1.03 floor area ratio to 1.0 FAR. The zone change and zoning map amendment is to revise the Downtown Overlay from 1.03 to 1.0 FAR.
