Project Description

The EKN Appellation project would include the development of a 6-story hotel building with guest rooms, event space, and food service uses, and a below-grade parking garage with valet parking for 58 vehicles using parking lifts. The ground floor would include the hotel lobby and a restaurant with interior and exterior seating for 150 guests. Floors 2-5 would include 93 hotel rooms and a fitness center for hotel guests. Floor 6 would include a 1,372-square-foot event space and an exterior bar/event space with seating for 56 guests. The proposed hotel development would exceed current Floor Area Ratio (FAR), building height, and lot coverage maximums.
