The Beacon Hill Civic Association Zoning and Licensing Committee recently held an informal meeting to discuss preliminary plans to demolish a two story building located at 156 Cambridge St. The building is currently home to the Beacon Hill Athletic Club and Seoul restaurant. Preliminary plans calls for a development of an 8 story building which would accommodate an extended stay hotel and other mixed use spaces. The preliminary plans call for 70 extended stay hotel suites, 2 levels of underground parking, a restaurant and more.
Some members indicated some objection to the height of the proposed building in the neighborhood, but many agreed that the improvements are needed. The applicants took comments from the meeting and agreed to return to the community with a revised proposal before moving forward with the project.
