Ellicott Development has shifted plans for a new hotel on the northern edge of the Medical Campus. The developer is proposing a 103-room Element hotel on a vacant site at the corner of St. Paul and Ellicott streets, southeast of its recently-completed office building at 1091 Main Street.
The proposed eight-story structure would include approximately 14,000 sq.ft. of ground floor retail space and a 103-room extended stay hotel on the upper floors. The building will include five levels of structured parking for approximately 560 vehicles. Kideney Architects is designing the project.
• Zoning Ordinance 3.2.5.D.C: Corner side yard (min/max) setback. The ordinance allows for a O’ corner yard setback. We are proposing a corner yard setback between O’ and 25.45′.
• Zoning Ordinance 3.2.5.D.D: Corner side yard build-to percentage. The ordinance allows for a minimum 85% build-to percentage. A 0% build-to percentage is proposed.
• Zoning Ordinance 3.2.5.E.A: Max building height in a N-lC zoning district. The ordinance allows for a maximum height of 1.25 times the widest adjacent thoroughfare. Ellicott Street is the widest adjacent thoroughfare at 66′, which would call for a max building height of 82′ 6″. A building height of 99′ 4″ is proposed.
Last year, Ellicott Development obtained approvals for a nine-story structure with 12,000 sq.ft. of retail space and six levels of parking for 430 vehicles topped by a 104-room hotel for a site closer to Best Street.
The Zoning Board of Appeals will review the project at its meeting next Wednesday.
