Stanford Hotels eyes 50-story tower with a hotel and housing
By JOURNAL STAFF

An entity related to Stanford Hotels Corp. of San Francisco is talking with the city about building a 50-story tower at Fifth Avenue and Stewart Street that would combine a hotel and housing units.

Permit records show Stanford's early plan is for a 677,000-square-foot structure with approximately 194,000 square feet of hotel space, 225 housing units and 200 parking spaces.

Stanford representatives did not return a phone call requesting comment.

Project documents show Stanford is working with MulvannyG2 Architecture.

Last year Stanford got the 12,960-square-foot parking lot at 1903 Fifth Ave. for $16.75 million after a long foreclosure proceeding.

Multi Capital Group of New York originally planned two 46-story towers — called Heron and Pagoda — that would have condos, office space, a hotel and retail.

Four entities related to Multi Capital Group — Reuben Corp., Bronx Al LLC, Bronx RMT LLC and JJ Lyons Associates Inc. — paid $30 million in 2007 for a larger piece of property that included the site. But the companies defaulted on the loan and the land was turned over to a receivership.

In June 2012 Stonebridge Cos., a Denver-based hotel developer, put the site under contract and filed plans for an 18-story hotel, but because the land was foreclosed on it had to go to auction. The auction was held up twice because an entity that previously owned the land filed for bankruptcy and that brought activity to a halt.

Stanford's website says it has bought or built 13 hotels in major metropolitan areas. About half are in California.

Stanford recently got approval from the city to start a 15-story, 283-room hotel at 300 Terry Ave. N., near Amazon.com's South Lake Union headquarters.

Stewart Street has become a hotel development hot spot, with several projects planned:

• Touchstone Corp. is underway on Hill7, an 11-story office and 14-story hotel tower at Stewart and Boren.

• R.C. Hedreen Co. wants to open its 40-story hotel tower at Ninth and Stewart around 2017.

• RBF Property Group, which has ties to China, is planning a 42-story tower with 95 condos and 78 hotel rooms at Stewart and Minor.

The hotel sites are just a few blocks from where the Washington State Convention Center wants to expand. The 1.2 million-square-foot expansion is proposed for a site between Ninth and Boren avenues, Howell and Pine streets.

Another hotel for downtown!

Stanford shows new designs for 50-story hotel and residential tower
By JOURNAL STAFF

Rooftop decks and amenities in Seattle skyscrapers are usually reserved for residents and guests, but one hotel project wants its top floor to be open to the public.

According to documents filed with the city of Seattle, a 50th floor lobby and other public amenities are part of the plan for Stanford Hotels Corp.'s hotel and residential tower at 1903 Fifth Ave.

According to the latest plans, the building will have 229 residential units and approximately 200 hotel rooms. Previous iterations of the project called for 90 apartments on the middle levels and 133 condos on the top levels of the building.

The latest documents don't say if the units will be apartments or condos.

Stanford representatives did not return a phone call requesting comment.

MG2 is designing the tower.

An early design guidance meeting is set for 5.30 p.m. tonight at City Hall, 600 Fifth Ave.

Stanford's preferred design would have 3,000 square feet of retail space including room for a sidewalk cafe. There will be approximately 190 parking spaces above and below ground, and plans for call for some artist lofts in the building.
