The Mount Vernon Council of Citizens Associations Planning and Zoning Committee passed a resolution at its Tuesday meeting not to oppose the construction of Baywood Hotel in Mount Vernon.
The, to be located at 8668 Richmond Highway, will be LEED Silver certified and include highway frontage improvements. A representative gave a presentation on the proposed rezoning from C-6 to C-8 with a special exception to build the hotel.
The developer is ready to add a northbound turn lane if the Virginia Department of Transportation requires it, said David Dale with the committee.
The committee also heard from a representative from Belle Haven Towers, located at 6043 Richmond Highway. The owner of the towers sought the committee’s comments on a preliminary plan to construct a fourth building where a parking lot currently stands.
Dale said the project is in the very early stage and the project design has not been finalized.
