According to the BBJ, “Amherst Media Investors is planning to present plans to the neighborhood for a 21-story boutique hotel and the installation of a three-story digital sign for Stuart and Tremont streets, across from the W Hotel & Residences…Under the latest proposal, Amherst Media has reduced the number of hotel rooms to 202 from 240 but added two stories or 17 feet.
