Document Description
The proposed project would involve renovation of an existing lobby and conversion of lounge space to its’ previous historical guest room configuration by Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina (Tenant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve interior improvements within the North and South Tenant Towers. The following improvements would occur within the North Tower: - Demolition of the existing interior hallway space in the south side of the North Tower on the 2nd floor, including existing furniture, stud walls, finishes, and electrical components, as required. - Construction of a 108-seat dining lounge, buffet, grab and go, hydration station, business center, and a pantry within a newly laid out M-Club lounge (approximately 3,284 square feet [sq. ft.]) - Installation of seating and lounge furniture for a new lobby lounge (approximately 6,400 sq. ft.) The following improvements would occur within the South Tower: - Demolition of the existing six (6)-bay concierge lounge on the 24th floor including removal of existing furniture, furnishings, corridor and interior partition stud walls, doors and frames, finishes, window treatments, plumbing, light, fire, and electrical fixtures, as required. - Construction of six standard guestrooms to their original configuration, increasing the number of guestrooms to their previous historical number of 1,366 rooms total. - Installation of furnishings, finishes, and associated utilities for the converted guest rooms. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in two phases. Phase 1 would occur in Winter 2020 and Phase 2 would occur in Fall 2021; each phase would take approximately six months to complete, respectively. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Tenant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
