A rendering of the proposed rooftop restaurant at Parcel 5
Earlier this week, the development team at The Wharf applied for a minor modification to the already-approved design for a 412-room hotel slated for Parcel 5 at the development site (map).
The development team would like to modify the approved penthouse use from communal recreational space to use as a restaurant and bar. The design, created by SmithGroup, will also be altered to correspond with that use.

The Zoning Commission has already granted relief for penthouse setback requirements. As previously-approved, the rooftop has a pool and several green roof areas, along with a 2,156 square-foot penthouse accessory space. If approved, the new proposal would convert the penthouse to restaurant and bar use.

The original design included four sawtooth-shaped green areas along the east side of the roof. In the new design, the southernmost of those teeth would be improved with a boardwalk area leading to outdoor seating next to the restaurant.
The U-shaped, 9-story hotel, which will include retail on the ground and below-grade floors, is already under construction. The hotel will have a 237-room extended-stay portion run by Hyatt House and a 175-room portion run by Canopy by Hilton.
Correction: A previous version of this article misstated the number of hotel rooms; there are 237 rooms run by Hyatt House for a total of 412. The only architect on this building is SmithGroup.
