Despite a weak pulse, it's not yet dead. Chef Charlie Palmer will ask the City for another extension to build his long gestating, 371-room, non-gaming resort, suitably named The Charlie Palmer.

The extension will be heard by the City Council on March 6. A previous extension using similar language was granted a year ago, but invited skepticism from council members. The hotel was formally announced in 2007, after 30 months of pre-planning. Palmer and partners initially paid a $484,348 deposit to keep a hold on the land.

With no gambling on the property, the "four star" resort promised three restaurants, two nightclubs and a 10,000-square-foot-spa. A "Hollywood-style pool" would feature "tented cabanas" and the hotel would place a heavy emphasis on Strip-style customer service in a Downtown setting.

Palmer continues to promote the hotel on his Website, explaining one of the restaurants would be built on a "sky terrace" overlooking Symphony Park and The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Both of those ventures have been built in the time since Palmer's hotel was first proposed.
