The proposed application will have underground parking for 38 vehicles and four exterior parking spaces.
“That’s at the bottom of Temperance Street, where at one point, I do believe, we approved a condo development and it did not go ahead, so they’re going ahead with the boutique (hotel),” said Coun. Tom Hann, chairman of the city’s planning and development committee.
