The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 5,150 square feet. Plans call for the construction of a four-story group living accommodation, spanning an area of 9,273 square feet. The group living accommodation will operate as a residential hotel offering 39 units, an approximately 400 square-foot community room, and a manager’s office. The building will be constructed out of modular units built in a U-shape with an approximately 615-square-foot central courtyard. Rooms will be accessed by exterior stairs and hallways. Each living unit is approximately 178 square feet and consists of a toilet, bathing facilities, sink, bed, and built-in cabinet. No parking would be provided on the site.
