Note: See earlier article here.

The developer has made some changes in the original Margaritaville plan, including the following:

  • substitution of a small lighthouse for the airplane proposed for public access on the southeast corner of the property
  • one-story reduction in height of the hotel (now 16 stories)
  • refurbishment of the existing bandshell rather than the earlier proposed new theater
  • traffic light at Michigan Street (request pending with FDOT)

A more complete list of changes, along with an explanation for them, can be found in the City Manager’s MEMO to the City Commission dated August 30, 2010.

Next steps:

  • Planning and Zoning and Development Review Boards meet tonight (Nov. 18) at 6 p.m. to review the developer’s design and site plan and to consider his application for units from the hotel pool. (A beach developer may request extra hotel units — beyond what is allowed by the zoning code — from a pool of additional units.)
  • City Commission approval on December 1, 2010.
