Coastal Commission to address Beach Plaza Hotel Replacement

LONG BEACH — The California Coastal Commission will consider a project permit to replace the Beach Plaza Hotel in Long Beach, at its April 11 meeting, in Santa Barbara.
UNITE HERE Local 11, which represents hospitality workers, is asking the commission to reject the permit.
The group is arguing that demolishing the 40-room hotel and replacing it with a 33-unit residential complex with 72 hotel rooms would deny lower income people lodging because the rates would be more than $200.
In November 2013, commissioners voted against a motion to find no substantial issue with a development permit that Long Beach approved in July of that year for the would-be 4-story replacement that developer Studio One Eleven is planning to build.
