Union Nixes Fairmont Hotel's Hope For Condos

New, 16 comments

The Farmont Hotel's quest to go part-condo has come to an end. After many, many setbacks, including Tonga Room preservationists and Fairmont neighbors who weren't fond of the idea of two years of demolition and construction, the investment group that's spent two years trying to win approval is calling it quits. The investment group, which includes Oakland A's managing partner Lew Wolff, have been trying to come to an agreement with the politically powerful hotel workers union, which was concerned that converting up to 286 of the hotel's rooms to condos would cost some workers their jobs. After months of talks, the workers have voted against the plan.
