Proposed Revisions June 2017

 In June 2017, the property owner submitted applications to revise the approved entitlements for the hotel at 1111 Richards to a new hospitality concept: the “Tapestry” model from Hilton. The applicant states that “Hotel Eleven11 will be a boutique hotel that offers unique features and services that are flexible and responsive to guest needs.” The revise project would add a 14,000 square foot courtyard that could be used for outdoor events in conjunction with the 3,150 sf meeting room. It also includes four 800-sf hospitality suites which could be used for entertaining, committee meetings, or board meetings. The number of stories would drop from five to four; room counts and parking spaces would be adjusted by approximately 30 percent.

Comparison between approved and proposed hotels (submitted by applicant) 

The revised project requires Planning Commission approval of a modified Conditional Use Permit and Site Plan / Architectural Review. Public hearing is scheduled for June 29.

Planning Commission Public Hearing March 8, 2017

On March 8, 2017, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on the Conditional Use Permit and Design Review applications for the revised proposal.  The official agenda and supporting documents are posted here. The Commission approved the applications and no appeal was filed by the end of the appeal period.

 

Proposed Revisions January 2017

Planning Commission public hearing is tentatively scheduled for March, 2017.
