During its November 15 meeting, the Pittsburg City Council are set to vote on whether or not to approve a Home2Suites Hotel project in the city of Pittsburg.
The project has already been approved by the Planning Commission. If approved by the council, it would result in a 2.09-acre vacant lot located at 2112 Loveridge Road be turned into a 115-room four-story hotel.
The requested approvals include:
- a General Plan map amendment to change the site’s land use designation to ‘Community Commercial’;
- a zoning map amendment to rezone the site to CC-O (Community Commercial with a limited Overlay in order to increase the maximum allowable floor area ratio to .69), District;
- a use permit to establish a 115-room hotel; and
- design review to construct a four-story 61,617 square-foot commercial building
The project was first brought to the city in September of 2020 and approved by the planning commission on October 12, 2021 in a 6-0 vote.
The proposed project is to construct a four-story, 61,617-square-foot, 115 guest room hotel development. The ground floor would include 19 guest rooms, a lobby, fitness room, guest laundry and other guest amenities. The second, third and fourth floors would each contain 32 guest rooms. The upper floors of the hotel would be accessed through a set of elevators located at the eastern end of the building, where a staircase would be located as well. The hotel building would stand 52-feet, 1-inch in height, with a FAR of approximately 0.69.
The exterior building design of the hotel can be characterized as modern and sleek and would consist of a rectangular footprint with staggered walls. Building materials would include a textured exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS), cement fiber board, aluminum accent bands, a steel canopy and a tile base. A neutral palette of white, grey and brown colors would be used on the building’s exterior. Hotel signage would be provided along the northern and eastern elevations of the building.
The building would sit at the center of the site with its main entry and porte cochere facing Loveridge Road. A trash enclosure is proposed at the southwest corner of the site. An outdoor pool and patio with a seating area would be located on the south side of the hotel. A drive aisle and parking area accommodating up to 120 automobiles would wrap around the hotel building. Two separate driveways are proposed for vehicular access off Loveridge Road, one of which would be a shared entry with the adjacent development to the south
One-time revenues related to construction permits and other development fees and exactions are anticipated with this project.
Staff anticipates the development will result in an annual increase in transient occupancy tax (TOT) of $300,000-$400,000. This revenue would support the City’s General Fund.
