After years of inactivity, the city has finally struck a deal to build a hotel at the Crossing.
The agenda for today's City Council meeting shows that the council will receive a report about the city's purchase of the vacant space of land near El Camino Real and Interstate Highway 380.
A new hotel would mean that the final piece would be put into place at the Crossing. The city has been waiting for more than a decade to build a hotel large enough to host meetings, private parties and weddings, and now it looks like that wish has come true.
Details about the deal won't be disclosed until today's meeting. But in a previous meeting, that two developers—San Diego-based developer Destination Properties, LLC, and Martin Regis Group, which owned the land on which the hotel will be built—were interested in the project.
Destination Properties said it was interested in developing, financing and operating a 150-room hotel—such as a Hyatt Place, Spring Hill Suites or Cambria Suites—on the 1.5 acre vacant site at the Crossing that would include about 4,000 square-feet of meeting space.
Martin Regis Group entered into an agreement on its own with a different developer.
City Manager Connie Jackson also previously suggested that the city could purchase the hotel site, which would give San Bruno more control over how the property could be developed.
The council has held several closed session meetings to discuss the deal, and it appears that the city has agreed to move forward with the last option—purchasing the site itself.
The City Council will meet at 7 p.m. at the senior center.
