Document Description
The project consists of a Coastal Permit, Non-Residential Demolition Authorization Permit, Design Permit, Boundary Line Adjustment, Special Use Permit, Revocable License for an Outdoor Extension Area, and Heritage Tree Removal Permit, to demolish a commercial building, combine five parcels, and construct a six-story, 232-room hotel with ground floor retail, banquet and conference space, restaurant, and bar. The proposed Boundary Line Adjustment would combine five existing parcels into one parcel to support the proposed hotel. The project requires approval of a Section 408 Letter of Permission from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to allow for the placement of fill between the levee and the proposed building and to allow for the development of an outdoor extension area adjacent to the Santa Cruz Riverwalk multi-use path.
