The Costa Mesa City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on the Wyndham Orange County hotel’s expansion plan, which would close the hotel for more than a year and add numerous renovations and a neighboring residential tower.
The expansion for the Wyndham, located on the Avenue of the Arts near South Coast Plaza, would be the largest of its kind undertaken by any hotel in Costa Mesa. The proposed changes include a new lobby and restaurant, a spa facility and a 23-story high-rise residential tower in the place of the existing parking structure.
The Planning Commission approved the plan in September, although the county’s Airport Land Use Commission ruled last month that the Wyndham plan was inconsistent with land use plans for the area around John Wayne Airport. The council will need a four-fifths vote to override the ruling.
The council meeting is set to begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
