There has been a lot of activity with new planned hotels and expansions. To add to the list, the Oceanic is going to be renovating and expanding too. Can't wait to see what the upgraded hotel looks like. Here is an excerpt from their planning board notice:

I see they are planning on tearing down the small cottages behind it.They are the last remaining pieces of the Sun Deck complex that spanned from Andrews Ave to Burke Ave.I remember staying in them back in the 60's.
