Photo detail

With a Marriott hotel likely to be built nearby, the owner of the Surfside Hotel in Lake George Village is seeking to build a new six-story building that would incorporate a two-level parking garage with four stories of modern rooms on top. Since the existing zoning code for Surfside’s Commercial Resort zone allows only three-story buildings a maximum of 40 feet high — and no parking garages — Salim Amersi is seeking zoning variances. A hearing on his requests is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 2 at the village hall.

Six-story structure, parking garage proposed for Surfside Hotel on Lake George

Although the side of Lake George's main drag that extends to the lake was specifically excluded from hosting tall buildings in recent zoning changes, the owner of a leading hotel situated on the lake has asked for a zoning variance to build a six-story structure to house 60 new rooms and a two-story parking garage, now prohibited in the hotel's zone.
