A Board of Architectural Review hearing for newly submitted designs for the Charlottesville Dewberry Hotel has been deferred by the applicant.
City officials said last week’s hearing on a certificate of appropriateness application was deferred indefinitely. City planner Camie Mess said the developer’s representative did not explain why he wanted to delay the hearing on the application.
The City Council last month voted against a performance agreement that would have provided the developer with a tax rebate estimated to be worth $1 million over a 10-year period following the opening of the luxury hotel.
City officials estimated that the property would generate $8 million to $9.5 million in tax receipts over the period.
