USA, Los Angeles, California. September 05, 2019

RobertDouglas announced today that it advised Fespar Enterprises LLC in structuring a long-term ground lease with The Robert Green Company for the development of a world-class luxury resort on the waterfront in beautiful Santa Barbara, California.

The project is situated on a breathtaking 3-acre waterfront site with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and down the coast. It faces a pristine ocean front park, sand beach and whitewater along Santa Barbara's beautiful Cabrillo Boulevard. The project has been impeccably designed with classic Santa Barbara style architecture by renowned hospitality architect Robert Glazier.

The property will feature well-appointed guest rooms with a generous number of suites, plus a restaurant and bar, beautiful meeting space, ocean view outdoor function space, and a roof top pool deck and bar overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Details of the hotel brand have yet to be announced.

"The Site is considered to be the last waterfront development opportunity in one of California's premier resort markets, making this a truly irreplaceable Project," remarked Lindsey Whang, a Director at RobertDouglas based in Los Angeles.

"This ground lease signing was the culmination of a highly competitive process involving world-class developers, strategic and high net worth investors, and luxury hospitality brands that responded enthusiastically to the opportunity," noted Stephen O'Connor, a Principal and Managing Director of RobertDouglas.

Hotel Law: A Labor Crisis and Cyber Security

According to a recent study, the hospitality industry accounted for 2.9 trillion dollars in sales and in the U.S. alone, was responsible for 1 in 9 jobs. In an industry of that scope and dimension, legal issues touch every aspect of a hotel's operation, and legal services are required in order to conform to all prevailing laws and regulations. Though not all hotels face the same issues, there are some industry-wide subjects that are of concern more broadly. One of those matters is the issue of immigration and how it affects the ability of hotels to recruit qualified employees. The hotel industry is currently facing a labor crisis; the U.S. Labor Department estimates that there are 600,000 unfilled jobs in the industry. Part of the problem contributing to this labor shortage is the lack of H2B visas for low-skilled workers, combined with the difficulty in obtaining J-1 visas for temporary workers. Because comprehensive immigration reform is not being addressed politically, hotel managers expect things are going to get worse before they get better. Corporate cyber security is another major legal issue the industry must address. Hotels are under enormous pressure in this area given the large volume of customer financial transactions they handle daily. Recently, a federal court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission had the power to regulate corporate cyber security, so it is incumbent on hotels to establish data security programs in order to prevent data breaches. The lack of such programs could cause hotels to face legal threats from government agencies, class action lawsuits, and damage to their brand image if a data breach should occur. These are just two of the critical issues that the December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
