The City Council has gotten its 1st appear at new renovation designs for the long-unfinished Palm Household hotel project, which for several years has been regarded by many Palm Seaside inhabitants as an eyesore on one particular of their primary streets.

And after a prolonged discussion of particularly what they were being remaining asked to do, council associates this thirty day period gave a conditional — and unanimous — thumbs-up to the hotel’s site prepare, alongside with several code-variances and so-termed “special exceptions” needed for the challenge at 160 Royal Palm Way.

The tentative approvals will pave the way for architects to commence working on design drawings, a process that could just take six to 8 months to entire, the council was explained to for the duration of its review.

Officials’ closing approval of the Palm House renovation ideas will hinge on a number of parts that have yet to be introduced to the council and the Architectural Fee.
