Sea View Hotel

PROJECT STATUS

Updated 9/13/21 - On September 13, 2021, the City Council held a public hearing on the Sea View Hotel Project (the Project) and adopted the environmental document, code amendments, and project entitlements. For amendments to the Resolutions and Ordinance, see the City Council Actions. The second reading of the Ordinance will be held on September 27. Once the ordinance is adopted, staff will submit the Local Coastal Program Amendment (LCPA), including the Development Agreement, to the California Coastal Commission (CCC) for review and certification. The corollary amendments to the Zoning Ordinance and General Plan will not become effective until the LCPA is certified by the CCC. In addition, since the approval of the entitlements are dependent on the code amendments, once the LCP amendment is certified, the City will file a Notice of Final Local Action on the entitlements to the CCC. At which point, the project will be appealable to the CCC.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Updated 9/15/21 - 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 three adjacent commercially developed parcels (or two legal lots), 22729 and 22741 Pacific Coast Hwy. The project would redevelop and replace the existing development and uses on the project site with the hotel development and use.

CODE AMENDMENTS

The existing zoning for the Project 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 Commercial Visitor Serving-2 (CV-2), respectively, and a new Sea View Hotel Overlay District are 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.
