The management of The Standard, the boutique hotel on Belle Isle in the old Lido Spa, meets with residents tonight at 6 p.m. to present plans for renovating part of the hotel and adding a mechanized parking structure.
Belle Isle residents learned of the proposal last week during the Belle Isle Residents Association meeting.
According to BIRA President Scott Diffenderfer, The Standard plans to raze the one-story east wing of the hotel. In its place it would build a robotic parking garage no taller than the three-story spa and lobby building that provides entry to the hotel. Behind that, plans include a new, two-story wing with interior hallways.
We’ll share more details — and hopefully some renderings — after tonight’s meeting at the hotel, 40 Island Ave.
