The plan to expand the Waterfront Hotel and Suites will again go before the Salem Planning Board on Thursday night, according to the board's agenda.
The $12 million expansion plan calls for a new building perpendicular to the existing hotel and closer to the water’s edge, according to Symmes Maini & McKee Associates, which is designing the project for owner Rockett Management.
The new building will replace the existing marina building, according to the Planning Board and SMMA, and will include 36 hotel suites plus 14 apartments on the two upper floors, ranging in size from 850 to 1,400 square feet.
The new building will create a new entrance for the hotel and be connected to the existing hotel with a glass bridge. The plan also includes off-site parking at 25 Peabody St., according to the plans.
The plan first went before the Planning Board back in April.The public hearing will be during the Salem Planning Board meeting on Thursday, which starts at 7 p.m. in room 313 at the City Hall annex at 120 Washington St.
