Property owner Daxa Patel has reapplied for a building permit from the Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). Patel still hopes to build a five-story hotel on a 1.5-acre parcel at 2350 Harbor Bay Parkway. 

One of BCDC’s many roles is overseeing the 100-foot shoreline band that surrounds San Francisco Bay. The commission may authorize buildings within that 100-foot band. However, in a May 2016 study, BCDC’s Design Review Board found that the proposed location of Patel’s hotel is too close to the shoreline.
