Controversial Solvang apartment building could be scrapped for hotel

Ed St. George proposed hotel development
Solvang City Council

SOLVANG, Calif. - A controversial plan for an apartment building in Solvang, could be scrapped for a smaller Spanish-style multi-use hotel building.

The Danish-style apartment building proposed on the land purchased by Ed St. George was going to include land the Solvang Veteran's Hall also stands on. Instead, the Spanish-style hotel will only use the land purchased by St. George.

The city council also questioned the income brought in through the two proposed buildings. The developers say the hotel could bring in anywhere between $1-2 million a year while the apartment building would only bring in $10-15 thousand a year.

Solvang City Council will be waiting for community feedback on whether the Spanish-style or Danish-style is preferred for the development.
