Developer Mike Harrah has taken another step forward with plans to construct a $100-million mixed-use complex on two City-owned properties at the intersection of 3rd Street and Broadway in Downtown Santa Ana.
Harrah's project, which was selected over four competing proposals in March 2017, calls for the construction of two mid-rise buildings featuring 160 apartments, 106 hotel rooms, public parking and a mix of retail and restaurant space. Much of the parking would be built in a 10-story structure, which would be built by the City of Santa Ana.
A hotel operator has not been identified, although a City document points to an operation similar to a Hilton Garden Inn.
Conceptual renderings of the project issued with a 2014 request for proposals were created by John Kaliski Architects.
