The Renaissance on the River -- a $60 million riverfront hotel, office and residential development proposed for riverfront property off Riverside Drive -- inched a step closer to reality Monday.

The Macon-Bibb County Urban Development Authority voted to draft a letter of intent that would allow developers to begin marketing the project’s first phase, which would feature an upscale tower hotel with 40 rooms, 24 condominiums and top-floor restaurant and club. The vote calls for the authority to have the letter of intent approved by June 1 and an option on the 12-acre site approved by Sept. 1.

Terms reached on $50 million river development in downtown Macon

The Macon-Bibb County Development Authority executed a letter of intent Thursday that gives developers the go-ahead to seek financing for Renaissance on the River -- a $50 million upscale hotel, condominiums and office development off Riverside Drive. According to the letter of intent, the developers intend to build 24 condos, a 42-bed hotel and 100,000 square feet of office and commercial space, along with a parking garage, a “River Club” at the top of the tower hotel. Phase two calls for 142 apartment units over ground floor retail.

I know there's going to be 3 floors of hotel rooms,8 floors of condos and a top floor of the The River Club restaurant and meeting space.I think they said it will have some street level retail space also.so my educated guess would be around 13 floors,about the same height as the BBT building.

Actually on Macon.com it says that it is a 42 room 24 condo hotel along with apartments so lets say there are 6 rooms on each floor, 6 goes into 42, 7 times 6 goes into 24, 4 times, 7+4=11 but if the apartments are apart of the hotel too then the hotel would be a lot taller because there will be 142 apartments, and they say it's supposed to be a tower hotel.

the apartments are in phase two and will be a seperate building.the architect designing it designed Riverplace in Greenville,S.C which this development will have alot of the same design elements.

Form what you have seen, what do you mean, there are pictures, and apparently the Apartments seem to be rather taller than the hotel unless they are in different sections.

I caught a glimpse of the architects rendering from a distance.the apartment are in a different area from the hotel and office building.the apartments from what i understand will be mixed-use buildings with 4 stories.the ground floor will be retail with 3 stories of apartments above.

So pretty much what you said before about the office being the same height of the hotel means they will both be highrises or probably be low rises because the hotel only has 40 rooms and 24 condominiums.

yes.considering the small footprint of the whole site.which i believe there's only about 5-7 acres that can be bulit on.both look to be in the 12-16 story range.
