Something boutique probably.

This is a handsome design. This along with the Witte Building proposal can do a lot for the 100 block of E Commerce. I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops.

This is an awesome design. Hopefully it is approved by the HDRC. We could use from freshness with the older architecture we have. It also looks as though they want to put a restaurant at the bottom with chairs lining the street. Sweet!

I so hope this goes through, it looks amazing & I believe it'd spur more development downtown.

I agree.

There are three surface parking lots to the east of this site. Two small lots and one large lot. Those three need to be developed. This would encourage that. Though I'm hearing the large parking lot may be part of one of the proposals for the new CPS headquarters. Hope my source is right ad I hope CPS picks it. We'll see.

Yes. The hotel would replace the Fish Market building at the nw corner of St. Mary's and Commerce St.

The VERY busy bus stop adjacent to the Fish Market building will be relocated.

This looks very similar to a proposal from a few years back that I cannot quite remember the name of.

Definitely an improvement over what is there, and it incorporates the old whitish stone building with the three dark windows into the base.

I don't know. Different location and different design.







The last Fish Market proposed hotel was intended to be boutique, so this one might follow suit. If so, I wonder if this will spur a W Hotel development.

Different owner last time.

Also, as stated in the agenda for the building and reiterated by Ben Olivo today, if the HDRC denies the demo then Chris Hill would have no choice but to add density aka height to the development.

They'll more likely approve demo'ing the building as they have already once approved demo'ing the same building. However, if they did deny it, that might not be such a bad thing if that means a taller building.

It's not viable if he doesn't add density, which he's proposing now. If the demolition of the Sullivan Bank building is denied, then he would be back to the drawing board of how he could develop an economically viable project without the demo of the Sullivan Building. His quote is taken out of context, or somewhat misunderstood.

That wouldn't mean a taller building. This entire development (18 floors or taller) is dependent on the demolition of the Sullivan Bank Building.

Yeah, that quote seemed to be taken out of context. Well, regardless, the demo will more than likely be approved, paving way for this awesome building to get built.

This building will change and improve the design standard/quality for downtown.

I'm quite excited!

Isn't this totally different, this is the W hotel and the site here is Martin Street and St. Mary's where today the old abandon high rise is sitting, NW corner from Greyhound Bus station. On the far left is the old Crown Plaza hotel that has it's name changed every year.

Yes, the two developments (or rather proposed developments) are not related whatsoever.

This was the most recent proposal before this newly approved 18-story boutique hotel:

That would be great if some kind of development spurs up around that area. Too many abandon buildings! Maybe if the Greyhound station gets relocated around Broadway...that would be a great place for an office tower or high rise hotel.
