Garden Grove

Three-hotel project before planners

CONCEPTUAL illustration for the “Site C” hotel development planned for Harbor Boulevard in Garden Grove. The final project may look different (City of Garden Grove image).

That big empty lot on the east side of Harbor Boulevard at Twintree Lane could take a big step forward toward becoming a major development at Thursday’s meeting of the Garden Grove Planning Commission.

Topping the agenda will be a public hearing on a three-hotel development planned for that location. Investel Garden Resorts is asking for some changes on several approvals given in 2012 for a three-hotel project south of the Target store.

The site will still have three hotels with a total of 769 rooms, but the principal changes include:

  • two full-service and one limited-service hotel, instead of one full-service and two-limited service hotels
  • changes in the traffic circulation of the site
  • introduction of retail uses
  • rearrangement of certain building locations with the site
  • reducing the project site from 5.2 to 4.3 acres.

Also on the agenda is a proposal to change the general plan designation of 15 acres of land in the area of Brookhurst and 11th streets to medium density residential.

Also, the planners will consider a proposal to develop a 10-unit apartment complex at 9841 11th St.

The last item on the agenda is a municipal code amendment updating standards for development in mixed-use zones. Of special interest are definitions, operating conditions and standards for business uses that involve entertainment and/or the sale of alcohol.

The commission meets at 7 p.m. in the council chambers in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.

  1. I have many concerns as to how this will effect my neighborhood. Homes will be overshadowed, this is where children from this neighborhood cross the street to go to middle school. The city has not notified fhe people living here of any hearings. I feel the city has disregarded the citizens in this corner of Garden Grove.
