Tim Czerwienski

Description: The Proposed Project is an approximately 184-room hotel with a ground-floor restaurant. The site of the Proposed Project is 21,050 square feet and includes an existing Shell gas station. The Proposed Project will include approximately 105,000 square feet of building area and will be eight (8) stories with a maximum height of ninety (90) feet. There will be approximately 82 parking spaces in one below-grade level.
Please note that the purpose of this meeting is different than that of a traditional community meeting. As part of the development review process, Impact Advisory Group (IAG) members work closely with BPDA staff to identify the impacts of a project and recommend appropriate community benefits to offset those impacts. IAG meetings prioritize discussion between the project proponent (i.e. the developer) and IAG members.
