citizenM Hotel

On February 11, 2020, the City Council conditionally approved the proposed project, accepting the Planning Commission recommendation from their January 13, 2020, meeting to approve the proposal by citizenM for a conditional development permit amendment to increase the approved number of hotel rooms from 200 to 240 rooms and decrease the number of onsite parking spaces from 245 to 118 parking spaces. The approval allows citizenM to move forward with developing plans for the construction phase of the hotel at the Facebook West Campus. The hotel use was previously approved as part of the conditional development permit for the Facebook Campus Expansion Project. The approximately 90,868 square foot, five-story hotel would consist of 240 hotel rooms, a restaurant, and hotel amenities. The proposed project would utilize modular construction.

Current status

citizenM is working with city staff and Facebook to address the conditions of approval and associated requirements as their team develops the construction drawings and technical reports needed to submit a building permit application and begin construction. The amended and restated conditional development permit is available under related documents. As a condition of the conditional development permit, citizenM will be sponsoring a public engagement process to solicit input on the design of a mural on the face of the building. Further information regarding that process will be posted when available.

Environmental review

The proposed revisions to the approved CDP and the detailed architectural plans for the proposed hotel have been evaluated for consistency with the certified Facebook Campus Expansion Project Environmental Impact Report and the Addendum to the certified EIR. A second EIR addendum to the certified Facebook Campus Expansion Project EIR has been prepared for the proposed project.
