CLEARWATER — 10-story hotel approved for beach

The Community Development Board on Tuesday approved a 227-room hotel to be built at 421 South Gulfview Blvd. on Clearwater Beach.

The 10-story hotel is being developed by Ocean Properties Hotels and Resorts, the same company that built the Opal Sands Resort and purchased the Sandpearl Resort. It will be the sister hotel to the Opal Sands, according to Brian Aungst Jr., the attorney representing the project.

Aungst said it will take at least a year to complete construction drawings and obtain building permits before construction can break ground.
