The new Element Hotel – a boutique hospitality line of the Marriott hotel group – which is being jointly constructed with a Cracker Barrel restaurant on the site of the former Echo Restaurant on Longtree Way, has found a way of adding two more guest rooms without changing the building’s footprint, bringing the total to 104 rooms in six stories. That change, however, required the Township’s Board of Supervisors to issue a new approval. The consequences of that change also cascade into the 197-space parking lot it shares with the restaurant – a change compounded by the need to expand the room for tractor trailers making deliveries – reducing parking to 194 spaces. However, a needs analysis presented by the developer showed that the smaller number of spaces would still be adequate. As a result, the Board agreed to consider final action on the application at its October 5 meeting.
