A good reason for a partial moratorium

Look carefully at the Roger Reynolds development (133 Encina) as the best example of what residential development in the ECR-NE Low Density zone would look like.

"Project description Hunter Properties has entitled a project to construct 24 new residential units and associated site improvements at 133 Encinal Avenue. The project site is a 1.74-acre parcel that is part of the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan."

 The Sagar property at 1703 ECR is1/2 the size of the 133 Encinal project (36,410 sq ft or 0.8358578 acres) and would support fewer units.

"Sagar Patel is proposing to demolish the existing 28-room hotel (Red Cottage Inn) and construct a new 70-room hotel (Hampton Inn) at 1704 El Camino Real, in the SP-ECR/D (El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan) zoning district. The development would consist of a basement parking level and three stories above ground. The proposed development would be at the Public Benefit Bonus level, which would exceed the Base level floor area ratio (FAR) on the subject site. The public benefit bonus proposal includes the contribution of transient occupancy tax (TOT) revenues to the City on an ongoing basis."

Personally I would much prefer to see 12 residences on the 1704 ECR site rather than this massive hotel.
