PORT ORANGE, FL-City and development officials have given tentative approval to a rezoning plan that would allow demolition of a mobile home park on Seabird Island to make way for a 14-story luxury resort hotel. Locally based Halifax Properties LLC says the project would include a 264-room hotel, a 100-slip marina, meeting facilities, a restaurant and retail shops.

The hotel would be built next to the Dunlawton Avenue causeway and bridge on the Halifax River. Amenities would include a spa, exercise facilities, lounges, gift shops and a banquet-meeting space for up to 500 guests. A free-standing restaurant is also planned.

The existing Seabird Island Mobile Home Park, which occupies the entire 10-acre island, would be demolished to make way for the project. The developer originally proposed the site for a residential condominium project, but the collapse of the local condo market and other economic changes prompted Halifax to seek a different use. No budget has been set for the project.
