San Bruno officials will consider whether a 131-room lifestyle hotel with 3,000 square feet of meeting space is the right fit for the city Tuesday before starting exclusive negotiating rights with the developer.
The Crossing hotel site is the last vacant parcel within the 20-acre master planned development, according to a staff report by City Manager Connie Jackson. Last year, the city purchased the vacant lot south of Jack's Restaurant, 1050 Admiral Court, and north of Interstate 380 to ensure it was developed in a way that benefits the city. In October, San Bruno issued a request for proposals to develop the site. Five developers applied. On Tuesday, staff will share information about the proposals including recommending that the city move forward in negotiations with OTO Development which suggests building a Marriott Springhill Suites, Jackson wrote.
"We are very excited," Mayor Jim Ruane said about getting to this point.
Ruane said the project was sidelined for some time due to the economic environment. Now the proposal before the council offers a plan with amenities for meetings and gatherings
