A new hotel is headed for uptown Charlotte, after City Council unanimously approved a zoning change for the area Monday night.
The hotel would replace a parking lot at the corner of South Brevard and 4th streets, near the Transit Center.
Renderings show the hotel would have about 19 stories. BPR Properties, which is developing the site, has not announced the brand of hotel in city documents.
The rezoning comes as builders have opened hundreds of hotel rooms in and around Charlotte. A plan to build a 1,000-room hotel, which would be attached to the Charlotte Convention Center after an expansion, is also in the works.
About 700 hotel rooms opened in uptown last year at The Embassy Suites, Springhill Suites, Ivey’s and Kimpton, near Romare Bearden Park.
Last month, another 300 rooms opened at the dual branded AC Hotel/Residence Inn by Marriott atop the EpiCentre.
