Developers are eyeing the construction of another hotel in Revere, bringing the total to nine projects from Squire Road to the beach.
Ning Lu, the architect working with JBX Developers (the Lixi Group) came before the Site Plan Review Board last week proposing another hotel be built by her group at 58 Revere Beach Boulevard. The 12-story, 156-room hotel project will require a special permit from the city council to proceed.
There have been hundreds of proposed hotel rooms for Revere including the Marriott Springhill Suites at Waterfront Square by the Lixi Group.
Lu said the second hotel would be next door. Speaking in a metaphor she said “the first hotel is a sandsculpture and the second hotel shall be about the water.”
“We took the theme of wavy patterns and focus on a large archway,” Lu told the board, adding that there will be event space on the second floor. There will be 81 parking spaces and 75 off-site in a municipal lot.
All road openings on the site will be access by Ocean Avenue. There will be a restaurant but only for guests of the hotel.
“It’s now a conceptual plan,” City Planner Frank Stringi said of the development.
Currently, the city has roughly 800 hotel rooms with the Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn & Suites, Four Points Sheraton, Rodeway Inn and Quality Inn.
Under construction or in the permitting phases there are several hotels including 175-room Wyndham Hotel at the site of the former Shipwreck Lounge; 175-room Revere Beach Hotel on Revere Beach Boulevard; a 132-room Holiday In Express/Staybridge Suites at the former 205 Revere Beach Boulevard; a 175-room Parc Hotel; a 100-room LaQuinta Inns & Suites on Squire Road; and a 100-room hotel on American Legion Highway.
