Document Description
The project involves a request to rehabilitate the Coral Casino facility, including conversion of 2,900 sf of space, addition of 2,054 sf, removal of the La Perla Restaurant, La Perla Circle and second story temporary fitness center, and relocation of the dining facilities to a proposed second story restaurant with a third story sundeck. Other site improvements include pool deck and landscape upgrades, a series of interior renovations, accessibility improvements and addition of an accessible ramp to the Biltmore Beach, and a new vehicle queue area for valet operations on Channel Drive. The operational changes include the requested allowance for guests of registered Biltmore Hotel guests to use the proposed second story restaurant, and accommodation of reciprocal membership uses. The applicant is also proposing a modification of zoning ordinance requirements to allow encroachment of a portion of the proposed first floor addition into the easterly side yard setback.
