Charlotte City Council approved a new hotel in South End at their Monday meeting.
The hotel is planned at Kingston Avenue and South Tryon Street, on a mostly vacant 0.9-acre site. Two single-family houses are now on the property.
The rezoning plan approved Monday was filed by W. Holt Parham. The new hotel will include 120 rooms and 4,700 square feet of ground floor space that will be used for a cafe or other shops. The building could be up to 75 feet tall.
The site is a block from the Blue Line light rail, in a part of South End that’s seen a major apartment-building boom for the past several years.
