The expansion would occupy land to the north of the hotel, and would see the creation of a 200-room dual branded hotel, which is a current direction in the lodging industry. It would add 28,234 square feet to the existing structure, on Maple Street in Chelsea, Massachusetts. The majority of the hotel is extended stay rooms now, but there would be 12 non-extended stay rooms created during the expansion, if approved.
A special permit is required for parking because 118 spaces are required, and only 86 are provided. A Site Plan Review process is also required. The matter has been in front of the Zoning Board of Appeals already for a preliminary hearing, and a vote on the the project is expected this month.
