Aloft hotel site developers will seek Beachwood City Council approval on two measures that will make way for a new restaurant next door.
Beachwood Boutique Hotel, LLC., the corporation founded by Scott Berkowitz for the development of the Aloft hotel site in Beachwood's Chagrin Highlands, garnered Planning & Zoning approval to split their Chagrin Highlands site for a restaurant.
Berkowitz is mum about what restaurant will be there, but he said that he is in discussion with a strong candidate.
Another measure asked for a variance so that the restaurant's lot can be about 2,900 square feet smaller than what is required by Beachwood's zoning code.
The measures are expected to be read to Council at their March 18 meeting.
Planning member Craig Cohen, Commission Chair Rochelle Hecht, Councilman Melvin Jacobs (sitting in for Mark Wachter) and Mayor Merle Gorden passed the resolutions.
Members Bill Mann and Brian Zabell and Council Representative Wachter were absent from the meeting.
Also approved at Thursday's meeting were a final approval for a lot split to allow for JEA Senior Living Inc. to build an Alzheimer's Care Center on Harvard Road, which also requires Council approval, and final site plan for new and replacement signs at One Chagrin Highlands.
