IMPORTANT PROJECT UPDATES: The City anticipates circulating a Draft Environmental Impact Report for public review in July 2020. Please check back for public review of project documents.
The 5.59-acre project site is located at 125 Ocean View Boulevard, City of Pacific Grove, Monterey County, CA, in the City’s Coastal Zone. The project site is bordered by Central Avenue to the south, Dewey Avenue to the west, Ocean View Boulevard to the north, and Eardley Avenue to the east. The property is one block northwest of and adjacent to the jurisdictional boundary with the City of Monterey. The property fronts Ocean View Boulevard directly across from Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and historic Cannery Row.
Project Description Summary
The project is a proposal to replace the existing 165,000 square feet of “factory outlet” and related uses with a new hotel and commercial uses. The hotel and commercial uses would provide 225 guest rooms in two primary guest wings (Family/Group Wing and Executive Wing) with a restaurant and bars, meeting and gathering spaces, spa and fitness center and approximately 20,000 square feet of street retail uses along the Ocean View Boulevard frontage. These street retail uses would retain and incorporate portions of the existing industrial structure.
Project actions include grading, tree and vegetation removal, partial demolition of existing onsite buildings and improvements, additions/alterations to existing structures and construction of new buildings to establish the new hotel and related commercial uses. The project’s parking plan calls for a total 304 valet parking spaces on site, including approximately 260 subgrade parking spaces.
The applicant is seeking a Use Permit, Architectural Review Permit and Tree Permit applications to entitle the project, as well as encroachments, easements or other agreements for the use of a portion of Sloat Avenue to be incorporated into the project site plan. A Coastal Development Permit will also be required.
