Fort Sutter Hotel Project 

Next Thursday April 7th, the city’s Planning and Design Commission will consider staff’s recommendation to approve the project.

The upper five stories will consist of approximately 107 hotel rooms and a rooftop deck at 78’ feet. The site project site currently has two buildings, one built in the 1920’s and the other in the 1950’s. Neither building meet the qualifications to be considered historic in nature.  Planning and Design Commission Agenda
