Developer Gerard Bourgeois Jr. has proposed a $5 million green hotel, aimed at young travelers, located at 1500 Robert C. Blakes Sr. Drive. The hotel faces Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and sits less than a block from St Charles Avenue.
Replacing a vacant 6,252-square-foot warehouse, the developer plans for the hotel to have 42 rooms, 17,875 square feet of interior space, and four floors.
While the hotel will be required to have 21 parking spaces, the developer proposes 17: A combination of 9 on-site spaces, 7 on-street passes, and 1 parking space dedicated at 6 bicycles racks.
Architect Rick Fifield Architect designed the concept for the proposed development.
