The developers of the proposed Hyatt Centric hotel at the current site of Little Pete's restaurant near Rittenhouse Square are moving forward with their project, with plans to present the development next month to the city's design-review board.
Chancellor Hotel Associates' latest plan for the project at 17th and Chancellor Streets is scheduled for a Civic Design Review hearing on Oct. 4, according to an agenda posted to the board's website Wednesday.
Chancellor said in October that the 309-guest-room hotel would be developed under Hyatt's boutique Centric flag after initially planning to build it as a Hudson Hotel-branded property. Changes to the design for the 13-story project since its most recent iterations include the removal of a planned rooftop restaurant, according to the plans.
The hotel would displace a parking structure that currently accommodates Little Pete's on its ground floor.
Pete's owner Pete Koutroubas said in an interview that expects to get official notification in October that he has nine months to leave, per terms of his lease.
He said he is looking in the Rittenhouse Square area for a new location, but may not be able to find something affordable.
