Hotel proposed on Coventry Lane

Another hotel could be coming on the city’s southwest side.

Superhost Enterprise of Naperville, Ill., has asked the Fort Wayne Plan Commissions for permission to erect a four-story hotel on Coventry Lane adjacent to the recently demolished Coventry theater. The company is seeking a waiver allowing the building to exceed 40 feet in height, which developers say would make it similar to existing hotels in the area.

The developers are also seeking a waiver of minimum parking requirements. The application did not state the number of rooms or the brand of hotel being proposed, and company officials were unavailable for comment.

Superhost has 21 existing or planned hotels, including the Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites and Holiday Inn Express in Fort Wayne.
