South San Francisco, Ca   November 6, 2019 Submitted by Jake Ter (originated SSF FB pg)

On Nov. 20, there will be a neighborhood meeting to discuss a proposal for a new boutique hotel at 71 Camaritas, which currently is the site of Buri Buri Liquors and Ongpin Noodles. The meeting will take place at 7:00 pm at the Municipal Services Building (33 Arroyo). If you have questions or concerns about this project, we encourage you to attend the meeting, or feel free to contact the property owner: Surresh Gandhi at (650) 773-8176 or Alternatively, please contact the SSF Planning Division at (650) 877-8535. Below is a rendering of what the hotel might look like:

{Please note the work being done on Westborough Blvd near the Golf Course will be utility buildings for the use of the Golf Course, there are no apartments going in there, as many have speculated.}

    One word, ugly like their Civic Campus which we didn’t vote for or approved.
    what is the City going to do when there is a glut of overpriced apartments and the units go unoccupied, like at the Cadence at 400 Cypress?
    I heard they are becoming Air BnBs and offer 6 weeks free rent.

    What are they going to do when the old car wash apartments don’t get renters? become more Air BnBs?

      Perhaps there wouldn’t be so many empty apartments if they’d lower rents so people could afford them.

        Please do not build a boutique hotel here. I don’t even frequent the shops there now, but they are much more better. I think the city should focus on retaining the old neighborhood than doing a complete facelift. Please.

    I agree with Charlie! Stop this ridiculous over building!!! My hometown is being chipped away. No more a sleepy, family oriented, close knit town it used to be. Let’s just keep displacing the small businesses. So very sad. In fact, I spend more time away from SSF than being here because it breaks my heart to watch what is happening.

    We don’t need a hotel in the middle of a neighborhood. What a ridiculous idea. Please attend meeting and speak up against it.

    enough traffic already, if people are going to use the motel. Where the planners of such projects get the evidence that such projects will be profitable?

    And where are all the people going to shop?? At the old safeway on chestnut and pacific market?? We need more and better stores and places to go have coffee and kids to go do activities

      I would love to know who in the community actually wants this? People want places to shop, places to gather as a community. Not more high rises and surely not a hotel in residential area where local businesses have been for years. Sad to see this happening to SSF. Another example of why people are leaving California. I really hope the City Council listens this time.

    I don’t like the idea. We want the neighborhood to stay like it is – with the nice store and restaurant and other neighborhood businesses etc. The traffic congestion will be not to our liking. The hotel doesn’t look like it belongs there. I’m sure there are other places in which a 6 story hotel can be built. The businesses there are a part of us and we don’t want to see them go away.

    I just don’t understand why we would need this or the traffic it would add to this area. I live on Arroyo Dr but soooooo happy I’m not on that block. How are the people living on the first couple of houses going to feel with strangers coming and going , next to their back yards. Poor wild life that lives on that back lot. Too much construction going on already!!! yard. Really hope this doesn’t get approved

    Of all things Buri Buri needs, a boutique hotel? What is the necessity for this? Tons of hotels in SSF by the airport and along El Camino. How about something necessary like public housing, or at least something fun

    Let’s keep our Neightbor CLEAN!
    We don’t need or want a hotel nearby!

    Absolutely No More building in our city!!! Destroying the beauty of what South City is, and another 6 story building on Camaritas will just be ugly. Not wanted or needed. There is just too much now, too many ppl, streets, roads congested, just awful!!!! NO NO NO
