The Sherman Planning & Zoning Commission will consider a request to allow two hotels and an event center to be built on the north end of the Sherman Town Center during its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the council chambers of City Hall, 220 W. Mulberry St.
Moe Hospitality LLC is requesting a specific use permit and site plan approval for a five-story Residence Inn Marriott with a separate one-story event center and four-story second building at 811 Graham Drive. The five-story building will be 81,618 square feet with 120 rooms, while the four-story building will be 47,075 square feet with 77 rooms. The event center will be 6,220 square feet and parking will be provided for 284 spaces on the property.
The Residence Inn Marriott is a separate request from the Courtyard Marriott approved by the commission and City Council earlier in the year. The site plan approved for that development by Sherman Hotels LLC calls for a five-story hotel with 117 rooms at 4344 Loy Lake Road.
The council’s approval of the Courtyard Marriott’s plan in June was actually the third time a specific use permit had been granted for the hotel — the previous instances were in June 2011 and November 2015 — though construction has never begun.
The commission will also consider a request from Cinemark and the Town Center to allow large signage on the east side of the theater that will advertise its new upgrades.
Zoning changers are being requested from a retail business district to a residential district at 112 W. Staples Street and 1714 North Woods Street, and from a single-family agricultural district to a retail business district at 19325 W. U.S. Highway 82.
A specific use permit and site plan approval is being sought to allow a tattoo studio for permanent makeup at Salon Thairapy at 19311 W. U.S. Highway 82. And Steven and Courtney Mitchell are requesting an exception from the commission’s board of adjustments to allow and awning and wall sign at 217 South Travis Street, where they would like to open a photography studio.
