San Gabriel City Council will consider final approval on Tuesday, Dec. 16, on a proposed Hyatt Hotel and Residences Project at 101-111 West Valley Blvd, site of the old Norm’s Restaurant.
The planned hotel will have 222 rooms, 55,000 square feet of retail space and 85 residential condominiums on the two-acre site.
The Planning and Design Review Commissions met in joint session Monday (12-9) and granted approval of several permits for a proposed Hyatt Hotel and Residences Project.
According to a San Gabriel city newsletter, Planning Commission approval was granted on a 3-0 vote. The Design Review Commission approved the project on a 2-0 vote (1 absence).
“During the hearing, commission members raised concerns regarding the shade impacts to a multifamily building, located on Del Mar Avenue, just north of the project site. After a lengthy discussion, the Planning Commission added a condition of approval to the project that will require the project architect to revise the
plans to further minimize shade impacts,” according to the newsletter.
The Commission also reviewed and recommended that the City Council approve the remaining entitlements including a Zone Change, General Plan Amendment, Specific Plan Amendment and the adoption of the environmental document, a Mitigated
Negative Declaration. The Design Review Commission approved the Precise Plan of Design.
The remaining entitlements for this project will be heard by the City Council at its meeting on Tuesday 7:30 p.m.
The Hyatt Project is one of half-dozen hotel projects being proposed in the West San Gabriel Valley.
