Port OKs hotel plans at Lane Field, Harbor Island

Plans for hotels on Harbor Island and Lane Field were unanimously approved by the Board of Port Commissioners Tuesday.

Sunroad Enterprises' plans call for the creation of a 175-room hotel on one of Sunroad's leaseholds at 955 Harbor Island Drive overlooking the 600-slip Sunroad Marina on Harbor Island.

Unite Here Local 30, a union attempting to force Sunroad to only hire union contractors, has been trying to block the project. A similar battle with this union in 2005 caused Gaylord Hotels to pull out of what was to be a 1,400-room hotel and convention center on the Chula Vista bayfront.

The Board of Port Commissioners also unanimously approved a 253-room Springhill Suites by Marriott and a 147-room Residence Inn by Marriott on the Lane Field property. The project is expected to cost about $130 million to complete.

Along with the rooms, the developers are planning 5,600 square feet of meeting space, approximately 23,000 square feet of retail, and a minimum of 414 parking spaces.

The Lane Field partnership consists of Rob Lankford of Lankford & Associates, Hensel Phelps Construction and Portman Holdings.

The term of the management agreement is 30 years from the opening of the hotels, plus two 10-year options to extend. The Lane Field hotels will be managed by Marriott (Nasdaq: MAR) during at least the first five years of operations.

Can somebody please explain to me how these Unions still exist and why? They serve no purpose anymore, we treat our employees with respect, pay them well, provide benefits and never work them over 8hrs a day without paying overtime. All they do is cause trouble and cost us employers money! They are ancient history!
