6-Story Hotel Project Could Replace Vacant Industrial Building in Anaheim
A vacant industrial building could be demolished for a proposed six-story hotel building according to a recent notice of intent released by the City of Anaheim.
The Hotel 55 project would be located on a 0.68-acre lot at 1730 South Clementine Street and consist of 125 rooms, 380 square feet (SF) of accessory commercial space, and a 490 SF fast-casual restaurant café.
The project proposed by Anaheim Barn LLC, an entity linked to BLVD Hospitality, would be located in the 1,078-acre Anaheim Resort Specific Plan (ARSP) area boundaries, which are designated for recreation and tourist/convention-related activities and supporting uses. ARSP consists of three specific plan areas including the Disneyland Resort Specific Plan area, which encompasses the Disneyland Resort.
The Hotel 55 project would include a bus stop for Anaheim Transportation Network (ATN) buses within the parkway along the street frontage. 86 parking stalls would be incorporated into the project site via a valet access-only parking garage with a car stacking system.
The developer’s proposal includes a Mitigated Negative Declaration, a General Plan Amendment, a Specific Plan Amendment, and a Minor Conditional Use Permit approval. The General Plan and Specific Plan Amendments would accommodate the applicant’s request to build beyond the current maximum allowed density of 75 hotel rooms per square mile.
The public review of the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the project opened on July 16th and will close on August 8th.
If the current project timeline is followed, demolition activities would begin in early 2021 and the project would reach completion in the summer of 2022. Axis/GFA Architecture is designing the project.
The project is scheduled to appear before the Anaheim Planning Commission on August 17th.
