Project Description: The action involves removing three existing hotel structures and re-developing the site with a new 93 room four story hotel, approximately 29,000 square feet in footprint (37,000 ± square feet in footprint including roof overhangs and balconies) with an overall total of approximately 90,000 of floor space. The proposed hotel will include: restaurants; bar; conference/meeting facilities; indoor/outdoor spa; and an open grassy area/dock area, a portion of which will be semi-public. Proposed parking areas, connections to the municipal water and wastewater systems, and vehicle and pedestrian access are detailed in the application materials. The height of the proposed hotel will measure approximately 55 feet at its third floor ridgeline and approximately 66 feet at its fourth floor ridgeline, with the highest points of the structure (top of the proposed Turret) measuring approximately 69 feet. As a structure taller than 40 feet in height, the proposed hotel requires an APA permit as a Class A Regional Project pursuant to 810(1)(a)(4) of the Adirondack Park Agency Act. A portion of the proposed project is located within 50 feet of the mean high water mark of Lake Flower and as such requires a variance from the shoreline setback restrictions in § 806 of the Adirondack Park Agency Act.
