A proposed Silicon Valley boutique hotel project a stone’s throw from Apple Park has been given the green light by the local council despite a petition against it.
Cupertino City Council voted 4-1 in favour of the hotel construction despite a petition from the Laborers International Union of North America.
The petition stated that the council had failed to look into the environmental impacts of the build after their first vote on the hotel in March.
The project will see the demolition of an existing auto service center.
In its place will be a seven-story hotel with underground parking and event space.
Also onsite will be a restaurant and a rooftop lounge, both with their own separate bars.
It is reported that a shuttle service from the hotel will offer access to two local airports as well as to the headquarters of major local employers such as Apple Park, also in Cupertino.
