Proposed Porter Street hotel

Architect's rendering.

Heath Management Co. is seeking BRA approval to convert a decaying old factory at 151 Porter St. at Orleans Street into a hotel that would feature 127 "industrial loft-style hotel guestrooms with high ceilings, exposed structure and oversized windows to optimize natural light and dramatic city views."

In its filings with the BRA, Heath is also seeking permission to add a new sixth floor to the top to house fitness and business centers and rooftop gardens.
