The proposed hotel use would consist of a 10-story, 200-room hotel comprised of approximately 125,000 SF to be located on the northernmost portion of the site. Various site improvements would also be constructed that include associated utilities, internal circulation and access, hardscape (surface parking, driveways, and walkways) retaining walls, and landscape.
