Jeff Drago and Matthew Eckel of law firm Drago and Toscano showed plans for a hotel for 15 Harrison Avenue. The proposed 26-storey hotel would replace the current five-floor building on a 3,400 square-foot lot. A total of 126 hotel rooms and six suites are planned, with no kitchen for room service. The hotel would create 25 to 30 jobs.

“This is in the heart of Chinatown,” Drago said. “We want people to go out to the Chinatown community.”

The project planners sought community input, as the hotel is in the design stage.

Hot Eastern will move into the former location of Cafe de Lulu on Harrison Avenue and Beach Street. The council voted to support its beer and wine application, along with increased seating. It asked for more information about alcohol service training for restaurant staff.

A Chinese takeout restaurant is planned for 22 Kneeland Street, tentatively named The Little Kitchen, said Wesly Huang. The council voted to support the restaurant’s application for a common victualler license to serve food.
