The Day – Stonington Commission Approves Mystic Seaport Hotel Plan Revisions
Mystic — The Stonington Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday unanimously approved a series of revisions to an already approved plan to build a boutique hotel on the Latitude 41 restaurant site, including increasing the number of hotel rooms from 26 to 30.
Plans by Greenwich Hospitality Group and Clearview Investment Management, originally approved by the commission in March 2020, call for the restaurant to be demolished and a three-story hotel, guest house, swimming pool and a 16-seat restaurant. Construction was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Plans now call for demolition to begin this winter and construction to begin in the spring of 2023. The Delmar Hotel will take about a year to complete.
Among the changes approved on Tuesday are the building’s expansion to 216 square feet, less than 1% of its area, and changes to the hotel’s terrace and swimming pool to improve pedestrian and disabled access. .
The developers are also increasing the number of bedrooms by decreasing the size of the other bedrooms, making minor modifications to the guest cottage including the addition of a vestibule and disabled access, changing the number and location of the windows and slightly decreasing the restaurant and the banquet. space.
