Lakeside Specific Plan/Previous Approval

In 2005, the City adopted the Lakeside Specific Plan (LSP) to facilitate the development of a mixed-use hotel and residential project for the 8.83-acre property at 1250 Lakeside Drive. The site was occupied by the Four Points Sheraton hotel at the time. The Specific Plan provides general land use and design criteria for a creative revitalization of the site as a mixed-use hotel and residential development. The City also adopted a Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and approved a Special Development Permit and Parcel Map for the 253-room hotel and 244-unit residential project in 2005. After receiving project approval, the property owner demolished the Four Points Sheraton hotel, but the approved project was never built. The site has been vacant since 2006.
