LIMAC Realty LLC’s plan to build a 64-key, 14-story hotel at 88 N. Washington St. in the North End was approved last week at the Boston Planning & Development Agency board meeting.
The proposed hotel project structure will be 128 feet tall, occupy 36,000 sq. feet and cost $16.5 million to develop. Community feedback resulted in a reduction of 16 feet of height with six fewer hotel rooms. Coined “88NOWA”, the hotel will have a first floor lobby, a second floor mezzanine, and 12 levels of guest rooms.
The developer will make a $36,000 contribution to the City of Boston’s Parks and Recreation Department to be used for the Parcel 2 park upon issuance of the building permit for the proposed project. Parcel 2 is the triangular plot of land across the street from the property where cars u-turn to get to the airport tunnel entrance.
