You'd think they could negotiate some sort of parking agreement with the owners of those lots. Or the garage at the medical building on 20th, which is never more than half full. And they could make it valet parking. I think this is actually an elaborate setup. They are going to get their variance denied and then announce that they are partnering with Unitronics to build a 9 story automated parking garage (and whatever happened to the one that was supposed to be built on White Oak?). Also, the redesign of the hotel is lame. It is now 5 stories instead of 4 and is more boxy. I actually kind of liked how the original design had a big patio fronting 20th st. with the hotel rooms set back a bit. While I can see this hotel getting bookings as being an alternative to downtown or galleria hotels with the benefit of a walkable area with restaurants and shops, I thought that they would make bank by being a wedding and event venue. But the blown up version looks like it minimizes some of the event space in favor of more rooms and retail space. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
