In July 2016, applications were submitted for Development Review and a Conditional Use Permit for a new project consisting of a 6-story hotel, including a restaurant. The project site is located at 550 North Third Street, and totals approximately 38,803 square-feet (0.89 acre) in Downtown Burbank. The project site is surrounded by Burbank Center Commercial Limited Business (BCC-2) zoning, multi-family residential zoning (R-4) and Planned Development zoning (Burbank Town Center Mall).  

The project proposes a single 6-story hotel (69 ft. high) consisting of: a total of 196 rooms; approximately 3,800 square-feet of hotel restaurant space on the ground floor; and three levels of subterranean parking with 196 spaces. Hotel rooms range in size between 320 to 380 square-feet each. Vehicle access would be provided through a driveway on Cypress Avenue, which would lead to the drop-off area and the subterranean parking levels. The proposed amenities include a fitness center, lounge/library area, pool/spa deck, an outdoor courtyard, and a rooftop viewing deck on the 6th floor.

The City requires approvals for Development Review and a Conditional Use Permit. The subject property is currently in the Burbank Center Commercial Limited Business (BCC-2) zone which permits a variety of uses including hotels, restaurants, retail uses, professional offices and services.
