A parcel map application was submitted last week that lays out a footprint for a potential hotel at the corner of Sunrise Blvd and Greenback Lane in Citrus Heights. The proposed hotel land use at the 2.8-acre site supports the vision set forth in the Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan to redevelop the 100-acre Sunrise Mall property into a mixed-use destination with multifamily residential, retail, entertainment, hospitality, office and community space.
Applicant Antioch Street Limited, LP acquired the property last year in part because of the potential the Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan creates: “The Specific Plan’s long term vision added to our enthusiasm about this acquisition and we are excited to be part of it” says General Partner Patrick Ellwood.
Antioch Street Limited, LP is engaged in discussions with Presidio Companies, a prominent hotel developer and hotelier headquartered in Davis, CA who has developed and operated hotels under Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott brands. Presidio Managing Principal Guneet Bajwa sees the Specific Plan’s potential as well, saying “Citrus Heights has great market potential and the Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan creates an opportunity for Presidio to tap into this key strategic location with the signature quality, destination-style product we are known for”.
After the Specific Plan’s approval in November 2021, the parcel map submission is an exciting next step in the City of Citrus Heights strategy to redevelop the aging mall, says Mayor Porsche Middleton; “Citrus Heights took charge of its own future by creating and approving the Sunrise Tomorrow Specific Plan. City leadership and staff have been working hard behind the scenes since then to advance projects, and this submission shows this work is yielding results.”
