Tumon is getting a new boutique hotel to welcome guests

TumonNorth West United States’ business district Tumon will get a new boutique hotel with green design features.


Hybrid Guam Land Use Commission gave the approval for the planned development on Thursday.



Blue Ocean Investment LLC, represented by TRMA Architects, had submitted an application for height and density zone variance and a tentative development plan for the hotel.



While the application was tackled in a hybrid land commission meeting last month, it was tabled so developers could be revisited by the Tamuning-Tumon-Harmon Municipal Planning Council.



The members of the MPC had voted in opposition of the application in a February meeting after raising concerns over potential traffic congestion and flooding issues within the area of the proposed development.



During the hybrid land use commission meeting, Michael Blas Makio, managing principal of TRMA Architects and representing Blue Ocean, said the team had presented information to the MPC.



While the Tamuning-Tumon-Harmon Municipal Planning Council opposed the proposal the second time, Michael Blas Makio said he is willing to work toward a solution to their concerns.



Jones and Guerrero legal counsel John Thomas Brown, a Tumon resident and member of the MPC, provided public input during the meeting. There is a misconception about the planning council, which is that every application gets disapproved by the body.  In the case of the proposed development, John Thomas Brown said the council does not object to development but to over development.
