Proposed hotel to get another look

Once more, with feeling!

The developer of a proposed hotel at McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard gets another shot before the Santa Clarita Planning Commission on Tuesday night after his previous designs were deemed by commission members as “rather plain,” and not worthy of one of the city’s showcase intersections.

Developer Hunter Oliver’s proposal was held over at the commission’s Oct. 4 meeting, and he was told to make various aesthetic improvements.

Oliver’s attorney said last month that such changes were in the works.

The commission did not have issues with the overall scope of the project — five-stories and 134 rooms, plus a free-standing restaurant on the site of the old Greens miniature golf course.

The Planning Commission meeting is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Council Chambers of City Hall.

Proposed hotel to get another look

This rendering of the proposed Oliver Hotel at McBean Parkway and Valencia Boulevard is being revised after it was deemed too “plain” by the Planning Commission.

    I always wonder how this all works out. Is the ‘designer’ embarrassed and getting back to the drawing board?..Or… Was the design intentionally set up as ‘pedestrian’ so as to have additional work for the ‘doll-up’ they all knew was coming?

    I don’t see anything wrong with this design.
