PALMDALE – A four-story hotel and two-story office complex is being proposed in a portion of Palmdale’s Trade and Commerce Center. The complex would be built in phases with the 120-room, 71,000-square-foot hotel being the first phase on the eight acres on the northwest corner of Fifth Street West and Avenue Q. A two-story, 21,850-square-foot office building would follow. No tenants have been identified for the project, according to officials with the development company, JWDA Associates. The site would have room for a third phase of development, but no projects have been identified.

An amendment to the specific plan is being sought that would raise the height limit to 45 feet. The amendment would come before the City Council for approval in January. The developer also is seeking city approvals to subdivide the property into three lots – two acres for the hotel site, 1.5 acres for the office building, and the remainder for the project’s third phase. The design calls for a four-story, U-shaped hotel done in earth-tone colors. The building would have a stucco exterior and a stone veneer wainscot on the columns. An outdoor pool would be built on the south end of the hotel. The office building would be done in a similar architectural style. Palmdale has been going through a mini hotel boom in recent years, seeing the construction of a Best Western and two Marriott hotels. A Hampton Inn is under construction. At least four other hotels are being proposed locally, with perhaps the most notable being a Hilton hotel that is slated to be part of the final buildout of the Antelope Valley Mall.
