CCRA will hold a Community Meeting on Thursday evening to address a proposed 12-story 310-room Hudson Hotel on the southeast corner of 17th & Chancellor (betw. Locust & Walnut).  The modern-looking midrise has a rooftop restaurant, underground parking, and ground floor retail, with a main entrance on Chancellor Street.  Click here  to view picture. The parcel presently contains Little Pete's restaurant and an adjacent nail salon and beauty parlor on 17th and, on Chancellor, a 4-story parking garage. Councilman Kenyatta Johnson has introduced legislation converting the zoning classification from CMX-4 to CMX-5. CMX-4 permits a 500% FAR (floor area ratio) - meaning that a building taking up the entire footprint of the property could only be 5 stories tall. CMX-5 has a 1200% FAR which accommodates the planned structure.  The proposed ordinance also eliminates  an off-street loading requirement. Click here to read a "Development Impact Analysis" regarding the project that was prepared for the developer by Econsult Solutions.  After the developer makes its presentation, the floor will be open to questions and comments.
