Sacramento, California Airport Receives Approval to Move Forward with
Plan to Develop Two Midsize Hotels on Airport Property

April 12, 2012--Sacramento International Airport officials have been given the go-ahead to move forward on a proposal for private development of two midsize hotels on airport property.

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday authorized the airport to negotiate a deal with Sonnenblick Development of Southern California to privately finance and build a 200-room hotel and a 123-room hotel at the airport near terminals A and B. If a deal is signed, officials said they believe the hotels can be built by 2014.

Airport officials had planned to build a hotel as part of the new Terminal B, but were forced to eliminate that project several years ago during the recession. A representative of Sonnenblick said the construction costs and interest rates make a project more doable now. Sonnenblick was the only developer to respond to a recent airport request for developer interest in the project.

The larger of the two hotels is expected to have two restaurants and a bar.
