Document Description
The proposed project would establish a framework for permitting a floor area and height bonus for hotel development on lots greater than one acre in size within the C-3, C-4, and MX zoning districts provided that specific conditions and criteria related to site planning and design, environmental sustainability, community integration, and the public realm are met. The proposed project would increase the existing Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of hotel uses from 0.34 to a maximum 0.70, and allow an increase in height up to 47 feet. The bonus provisions would only apply to up to four hotel projects. The amendments would also include an amendment to the C-4 zoning district to allow hotel uses as a conditional use (up to .34 FAR).
