The Boston Planning Board has approved Hudson Group's plan for a 21-story, 230 room hotel on the long-vacant site of the former Splash Nightclub in the Leather District. The hotel, designed by RODE features a sleek design with a double height lobby which will include a publically accessible cafe. The development will also bring much-needed pedestrian and safety improvements to the area. The Hudson Group has also committed to a 10-year plan that will offer 300 free hotel nights annually to people in need of short-term housing.
The proposed project includes building a 21 story hotel approximately 218 feet in height, with 230 rooms and a lounge on an existing site which includes a vacant structure consisting of 7,252 square-feet. Total gross square footage will be 96,500. 3,000 square-feet of the building will be used for lounge.
The property presents upside development potential, and is located across Kneeland Street from the SouthGate Boston development site and steps from the recently built 21-story One Greenway apartment tower.
