Updated 07/16/21 - On August 9, 2021, the City Council will hold a virtual hearing to consider the project environmental document, code amendments, and project entitlements and the Planning Commission's recommendation on the project. For details regarding the public hearing, view the Notice of Public Hearing. For the Planning Commission's final recommendation, view the staff report  along with the Planning Commission Meeting Actions.   


Updated 3/12/21 - The Sea View Hotel Project (Project) is a proposed +/- 39 room hotel development with associated amenities, including a spa, restaurant, private decks, and a rooftop deck with a pool, proposed on a 51,776 square foot (1.19 acre) project site. The project site is located on Pacific Coast Highway, near the Malibu Pier, and is comprised of two adjacent commercially developed parcels, 22729 and 22741 Pacific Coast Highway. The project would redevelop and replace the existing development and uses on the project site with the hotel development and use. 

Code Updates

The site is designated Community Commercial (CC) by both the General Plan, Malibu Municipal Code, and Malibu Local Coastal Program. The proposed hotel use is not a permitted use in the CC zone. Therefore, a change in the land use designation and zoning to Commercial Visitor Serving (CV) and CV-2 is included in the project description. The applicant is requesting various amendments to the General Plan, Malibu Municipal Code Title 17 (Zoning), and Local Coastal Program. 

For a detailed project description and a full list of entitlements required, view the Project Description.


The project will require review by the Environmental Review Board and public hearings will be held before the Planning Commission, City Council, and California Coast Commission. Staff reports will be available online prior to meetings. To view instructions on how to view or participate in a meeting, visit
