As The San Diego Union-Tribune reported today, Sunroad Enterprises has designs to build two hotel towers near Lindbergh Field that exceed the federal height limits.

And, despite the demands by the port and the airport authority to do so, Sunroad has not notified the government of its plans, the newspaper said.

But the company, in a letter to port district President Bruce Hollingsworth yesterday, said it will comply with the Federal Aviation Administration’s height guidelines when constructing its planned Harbor Island hotel next to the region’s international airport.

“I want to provide you my personal assurance that Sunroad has and will continue to comply with all land use regulations applicable to the proposed hotel project, including any FAA determinations,” wrote Aaron Feldman, the company’s president.

In a press release, the company said it is commonplace for the developer of a tall building downtown to receive a hazard notice before its project receives certain reviews.

“It is regrettable, although understandable, that such a standard review process is now so controversial,” the press statement said.
