Plans for a nine-story hotel on Park Point have been shot down, but it’s not the end of the road for the project.
Park Pointe Inn project was first brought up in 2010 and neighbors weren’t happy with it.
“This is nine stories on Park Point of modern glass. We will see it. We will see the reflections every day,” said Park Point resident, Kevin Keleher. “It is not natural to the area.”
Since the first proposal laws have changed.
Currently no building on Park Point can be taller than 35 feet, and this project will stand 125 feet.
Tuesday evening developers asked for a variance, or exception to the rule, and didn’t get the answer they were hoping for.
“We feel that we should be allowed to build something that we had been approved already to develop and to build,” said developer Troy Hoekstra.
Developers say they plan to appeal the decision which means the city council will decide if the project can move forward.
