This idea is something Larry Nelson tried to do with this very site back in 2008. At that time, he was trying to obtain the entitlements to build a 16-story hotel/condo building on the Lambie Street/East Avenue site. It was not, however, his intent to actually develop the property.

Nelson's group was trying to receive CBD-CURE zoning and raise the FAR from 8:1 to at least 12:1. As with the situation now, one must still obtain a variance from the Rainey Street sub-district to do so.
