The Grace Boutique Hotel is proposed for a site between Cooper and Lee streets. It is scheduled to go before the city's Technical Review Committee on Aug. 6. Plans show a 5,780-square-foot restaurant, 2,000 square feet of retail space, 41 parking spaces and 56 valet parking spots. The first floor includes a fitness area and breakfast bar.

The plans by CN Hotels Inc. require approval from the Board of Architectural Review and the Board of Zoning Appeals. Sunju Patel, managing partner of the Greensboro, N.C.-based developer, said the company is "still working out a lot of the details. We're definitely trying to have a story line to it. The architect will make sure it fits in well with the Charleston history."

Patel also said the developer is looking at ways to incorporate the former Grace Bridge into the hotel's design. The bridge and the parallel Silas N. Pearman Bridge were dismantled after the Ravenel Bridge opened 10 years ago.
