The Fairmont Miramar Hotel Expansion Project at a glance:
Located at the intersection of Wilshire Blvd and Ocean Avenue, the Fairmont Miramar Hotel Expansion Project is proposing to rebuild the existing Miramar Hotel and severely alter Santa Monica's skyline with a massive new hi-rise structure near our coast.
The proposed project consists of
21-story (320 ft) high-rise tower
568,940 sq. ft. of total building (nearly double the existing hotel size)
49,384 sq ft of commercial space
160 new condominiums
and only 484 parking spaces for the combined new Hotel, Residences, and commercial space
Impacts to Residents:
Severely alter the Santa Monica skyline.
Creating shadows from the 21 story structure.
Blocking the sun and ocean breezes.
Severely Impact traffic and congestion.
Overburden nearby residences with overflow parking in the most parking restrictive area of Our Town by not providing adequate parking for its own operations.
