While hotel occupancy rates in Boston have cratered during the pandemic, developers are taking the long view with plans for a 134-room hotel project in the North End.

The latest proposal calls for redevelopment of the former J. Pace & Son grocery store and neighboring parcels for a 80,824-square-foot hotel including two restaurants and a fifth-floor roof deck with capacity for 300 patrons.

No on-site parking is planned for the 0.3-acre, Greenway-facing site.

Developer Cross Street Ventures LLC is affiliated with Boston-based 6M Development, which also is proposing a modular floating housing project at Charlestown Navy Yard’s Pier 5.

The North End proposal will require seven variances and conditional use permits from the zoning board of appeals, including those for height and floor area ratio, according to a project notification form submitted to the Boston Planning & Development Agency.

Members of the project team include The Architectural Team of Chelsea, Tetra Tech, Copley Wolff Design Group, Petersen Engineering, Haley & Aldrich, Soden Sustainability Consulting, The Nolan Group and Vanasse & Assoc.
