PROPOSED HUDSON HOTEL: COMMUNITY MEETING, THURS., JAN. 29, 7:00 PM, 10TH PRESBYTERIAN, 17TH AND DELANCEY ENTRANCE
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.
