Civic San Diego is planning to review a proposal for a hotel project in San Diego's Cortez Hill neighborhood. The Sixth Avenue suites will be a nine-story, 98 suite hotel built on a small, 7500 ft.² parcel located on Sixth Avenue between Ash and Beech.

Currently, the rendering is for a modern and contemporary style building featuring a two-story glass atrium on the ground floor. The unique oriel windows will give the building some depth as it will bump out sections of the building itself. The common areas will offer a lobby, lounge and a grab and go snack bar. It will be a breakfast room and two small courtyards perfect for guests as well.

This new building will only have a 75-foot street frontage and they have decided to not include a parking garage entrance. The operator will have an agreement with the existing parking garage next door.

Designed by the San Diego firm Joseph Wong Design Associates, who has also built other downtown hotel projects such as the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and Lane Field, opening sometime within the next couple of years.

Currently, there is a small, brick façade building in this location. It would replace the office building at 1441 Sixth Avenue. The hotel will also include about 2000 ft.² of commercial space with the parking agreement with the adjacent garage.

Next-door, Cucina 35 will be moving into the space previously occupied by indigo Café and catering. Cucina 35 will serve old-school Mexican food as an offshoot of La Loteria in Otay Mesa.
