Project Name: San Carlos Hyatt Hotel Project
File No.: C20-015 and SP18-012
Description: Rezoning and Special Use permit to redevelop an existing vehicle wholesale lot into a new Hyatt Hotel. This would require the demolition of the existing 530 square foot sales office and the 2,061 square foot mechanic shop currently on the property. The proposed project includes the construction of a 105-room hotel at approximately 60,830 square feet, with an 11,844 square foot basement. The hotel will be six-stories tall, or 73.5 feet, and will include 105 rooms, two guest lounges, a guest kitchen, a bar/café, a gym, an office, a staff room, an ancillary storage, and housekeeping facilities. The basement will house garage utilities, housekeeping, and maintenance areas. There will be 58 standard parking spaces provided using 25 vehicle lifts and tandem parking, and two ADA parking spaces at ground level. The project will also construct a new 20-foot sidewalk with a new curb and gutter along West San Carlos Street, as well as a 12-foot sidewalk with a new curb, gutter, and approach along Willard Avenue. These improvements also include the planting of seven trees and the replacement of a bus stop with shelter.

The City has performed an environmental review of the project. The environmental review examines the nature and extent of any adverse effects on the environment that could occur if the project is approved and implemented. Based on the review, the City has prepared a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for this project. An MND is a statement by the City that the project will not have a significant effect on the environment because the project will include mitigation measures that will reduce identified project impacts to a less than significant level. The project site is not present on any list pursuant to Section 65962.5 of the California Government Code.
