Better Business Burro says that talks have broken down between Friend Hotel Developers and the City of Pacifica regarding development of a hotel at the city’s old Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) site in Sharp Park. The city survey (click link above) shows about 2-1 support for building a hotel at the site, but that is based on a mere 80 survey respondents. Out of a city of 40,000, that's about one-tenth of 1 percent.

Better Business Burro reports that the Holiday Inn Rockaway expansion project lost its general contractor and is looking for a new GC, adding: "The story I heard was that the general contractor from Arizona gave them a very good bid. He was just too busy at the time. They are paying construction loan interest. The real reason why construction was delayed: The appeal to the Coastal Commission slowed the process down. We are pretty much at peak economy; all contractors are booked 6-12 months in advance. The sign on the fence says 'Construction finance by Fremont Bank,' which is a very good construction lender. Very picky about who it does business with. I am surprised the owners didn't go to First National."

Surf Spot restaurant on Sea Bowl Lane closed August 27, 2017. Facebook page says: "To receive a refund on any unused Surf Spot gift cards, please send the card with your mailing address to 4625 Coast Highway, Pacifica, CA 94044." Impressive that Surf Spot honored unused gift certificates. That's good, ethical business practice by local owners. We hope they paid off their vendor bills the same way, so nobody was stiffed.
