Developer seeks demolition permit for Belleview Biltmore hotel
BELLEAIR| The St. Petersburg developer pursuing the purchase of the Belleview Biltmore has filed applications asking the town to approve his requests that the hotel be demolished, the site rezoned and his vision for condos, townhomes and a boutique hotel approved.
Attorney Ed Armstrong submitted the more-than-300-page packet plus exhibits Friday on behalf of JMC Communities founder Mike Cheezem, who is in the process of buying the hotel from Miami investors Daniel and Raphael Ades for $6.6 million.
The documents include a preliminary development plan, application for a demolition permit based on "economic hardship" and a request that town commissioners change the property's hotel and single family-only zoning to a mixed-use designation recently added to town code.
