The Jungle Island Hotel would collectively have 9,500 square feet of dining space, including the restaurant on the lobby level. Adjacent to the south side of the hotel would be the expanded parking garage. The structure would provide 787 parking spaces on four floors. The proposal includes significant changes to the property’s meeting space. The redevelopment would add an additional 12,000 square feet of meeting space, including outdoor event space that could be added atop the existing ballrooms. EoA Group designed the Jungle Island Hotel. Elie Mimoun, chief compliance officer at ESJ, is listed in the application.
