Dianne Y. @dt8k๐Ÿ”Whoa.

Turns out the 39-room hotel project on University Avenue has been in play since freaking *2010*

This is why Berkeley canโ€™t have nice things.


Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”The current item under discussion is the ballot measures the city wants to put before voters in November, and who wil twitter.com l write them. One bond measure is likely to focus on affordable housing. But council needs to set the threshold.

James Mowdy| ๐Ÿ— + ๐Ÿš€ Brands @JamesJetsOften๐Ÿ”Look, I donโ€™t really care about hotels

But I do care a about dense transit-friendly housing. This is a justice issue.

Anirvan Chatterjee @anirvan๐Ÿ”This debate about the bathroom on the roof of the mini-hotel next to 7-11 is scintillating.

But Iโ€™m tired, so Iโ€™m g twitter.com oing to head out.

, Iโ€™m counting on you to let us know how this all ends up.


Victoria Fierce, housing gadfly @tdfischer_๐Ÿ”So far it sounds like council would like to see the project approved with a few clear conditions in writing to address neighborhood concerns. So far, support for the bathroom, too.

Anirvan Chatterjee @anirvan๐Ÿ”Berkeley City Council member Linda Maio makes the point that this 3 story hotel is really really low, compared to oth twitter.com er buildings on this major commercial street. (Thank you for being a voice of reason!)
Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”CM points out that much of the new construction on University is a lot taller than this "low-rise boutique hotel." B twitter.com ut says she lives in the neighborhood and knows "that whatever happens on University Avenue happens to us."

Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”A neighbor just asked ZAB to make restrictions on the hotel more explicit.

And then she ends with "like Beyonce says, put a ring on it."

Pop culture references at Berkeley City Council, y'all.


Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”"This is a neighborhood, we want it to stay and not have to listen to noises," says nearby neighbor of University and twitter.com Sacramento hotel. She said she's already been bothered by construction noise.

Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”Neighbors say they trust the intentions but the details need to be written down to make sure the rules and agreements twitter.com are followed in perpetuity.
Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”Neighbor: "I donโ€™t want to end up with a nightmare of enforcement issues," like what happened with the Gaia building twitter.com downtown, she says: "A nobly intended project that became a public nuisance. Letโ€™s make sure this doesnโ€™t happen again."
Anirvan Chatterjee @anirvan๐Ÿ”The hotel architect says they cut back on the roof deck, how itโ€™s not a party space, and that amplified music wonโ€™t b twitter.com e permitted. And then he asks for a restroom.

Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”The distance from the deck edge to nearest northern neighbor is more than 100 feet, he says. The roof deck is propose twitter.com d to comply with city requirements for outdoor space. He says they already reduced its size.

Anirvan Chatterjee @anirvan๐Ÿ”That said, the neighbor speaking out against a restroom on the proposed deck at the new mini-hotel (the one across f twitter.com rom 7-11) sounds surprisingly reasonable. He has me halfway convinced that approving a roof deck restrooms is โ€œstrange and permissive.โ€
Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”Neighbor says it could become a nuisance if it is used as a party space. He says the hotel only has 39 rooms: Why doe twitter.com s it need such a large outdoor space? Also says restroom should not be allowed on the roof.

Anirvan Chatterjee @anirvan๐Ÿ”Whoa.

Turns out the 39-room hotel project on University Avenue has been in play since freaking *2010*

Berkeleyside @berkeleyside๐Ÿ”The zoning board approved hotel plans in 2010 for a 3-story 39-room hotel at University and Sacramento. At the time, twitter.com there were no plans for a rooftop deck. Owners did hope to build outdoor terraces, but revised plans after neighbors expressed concerns.
