III.           Area 3 Planning and Land Use

1717 N. Wilcox – Planning Dept. # ENV-2016-2264. Adolfo Suaya, the applicant, has applied to the City’s Planning Department for permission to demolish an existing structure and construct a 134 room hotel with a 2,500 square foot ground floor restaurant, a rooftop bar, three rooftop terraces, 104 parking spaces and 60,693 square feet. The floor to area ratio would be 2.94 to 1.

The Planning Department’s case no. is CP 2016-2263-VZC-HD-ZAA-CUB-SPR. The CA CEQA no. is ENV-2016-2264-EAF. Portions of the property are zoned C4 and R5. The applicant is asking for a zone change from C4 to C2 because properties in the C4 zone do not permit outdoor uses, such as the bar being proposed for the hotel’s rooftop, above the ground floor.

The applicant also is asking for permission to eliminate any side yards on the north and south side of the property. In addition, the applicant is asking for (i) a site plan review, which, if approved, would allow an increase of more than 50 guest rooms in the hotel and 50,000 square feet of floor area, and (ii) a conditional use permit to permit the sale of alcoholic beverages in the hotel’s ground floor and rooftop restaurants.

Representatives from Go! Goldman will be making a presentation on behalf of the applicant.
