Last month, we told you that Civic San Diego was planning to review a proposal for a hotel project in Downtown’s Cortez Hill neighborhood. Sixth Avenue Suites—a nine-story, 98-suite hotel—would be built on a small, 7,500-square-foot parcel located on Sixth Avenue between Ash and Beech. Now, we’re getting our first look at renderings of the proposed hotel.
The exterior is a blend of browns and blues, with oriel windows giving the building some depth. Plans include a two-story glass atrium for the ground floor.
Common areas feature an open lobby and lounge, as well as a grab-and-go food bar, breakfast room, and two small courtyards for guests.
With a limited street frontage of only 75 feet, it makes sense that they decided to skip a parking garage entrance. Instead, the operator will have an agreement with the existing parking garage next door.
The design comes from San Diego firm Joseph Wong Design Associates. That’s the same group responsible for other Downtown hotel projects like the Hilton San Diego Bayfront, as well as the upcoming Lane Field.
Located at 1441 Sixth Avenue, Sixth Avenue Suites will replace the office building shown above with the brick facade.
