Nobu Ryokan Motel & Malibu Tidepool Health Club
On November 6, 2023, the Planning Commission held a public hearing on the environmental document, entitlements, and land use and zoning changes for this project and continued the item to the December 18, 2023 Planning Commission meeting. The staff report will be available online prior to the meeting. Due to the code amendments associated with the project, public hearings before the City Council and California Coastal Commission are required.
The Ryokan Project consists of a General Plan, Zoning Map and Local Coastal Program mapping amendments from Community Commercial to Community Visitor-Serving-Two for the existing Ryokan Hotel (22752 PCH) and Tide Pool (22762 PCH), a coastal development permit and conditional use permit for the conversion of the existing non-conforming use (motel and adjacent private gym and pool) to a bed and breakfast inn, the sale of alcohol for onsite consumption, and a lot tie for the two lots to operate conjunctively and conversion of office space in the Tide Pool building into a new guest suite for the properties located at 22752 and 22762 Pacific Coast Highway.
Procedural Consideration - Due to the code amendments associated with the project, public hearings before the City Council and California Coastal Commission are required. In addition, approval of the entitlements is dependent upon certification of the Local Coastal Program Amendments by the California Coastal Commission.
