The proposed Cross Street Hotel is currently a 135-room boutique hotel that will draw inspiration from the history of the neighborhood. The hotel project will adhere to the 55’ height limitation in 5 floors and will have a seasonal roof deck terrace open to guests and the public. The hotel will also integrate an open-air passageway to and from Cutillo Park and will have restaurant space looking onto the park on the back side with the goal of deterring and removing the nefarious park activity that currently exists. Bill Caulder, developer, will present.
