Swank Hennepin hotel gets city's OK


The city's Planning Commission has approved plans for the upscale Chambers Hotel in the old Fairmont Hotel at South 9th Street & Hennepin Avenue.

The Commission signed off on the proposal by RWB Development Partners on Dec. 13, said Fred Neet, a principal city planner. The lead investor in the development group is Ralph Burnet, chairman of Coldwell Banker Burnet Realty.

The development group applied for a variance from the city to eliminate the required 13-foot setbacks on the building's east and south sides.
