Newport Beach City Council approved the site’s environmental report and land lease

The 3.8-acre Lido House Hotel received the go-ahead from Newport Beach’s City Council, which approved the project’s environmental report and land lease at a commemorative signing ceremony. The 130-room hotel will include a restaurant, shops, day spa, fitness center, rooftop lounge and 148-space parking lot. Slated to be built by R.D. Olson at the former City Hall site on Newport Boulevard, Lido House Hotel will initiate the revitalization of Newport Beach’s Lido Village. The City Council granted Lido House Hotel a 55-year land lease with an option to extend an additional 30 years. According to staff reports, when complete, Lido House Hotel is expected to boost the local economy by generating $1M+ in bed taxes annually.

Lido House Hotel Lease Signing
As part of the Lido House Hotel team, Fuscoe Engineering is providing civil engineering services, including site grading and drainage. Due to seawater levels in the subgrade soils, innovative and unique solutions will be required to satisfy both the life and safety aspects of stormwater runoff, while concurrently meeting LID development and water quality standards mandated by the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board. The project now goes to the California Coastal Commission for approval, with groundbreaking expected during the summer of 2015.
