Plans for a five-story Moxy Hotel in the Central Business District gained final backing Thursday from the City Council, paving the way for construction to begin by the end of the year after nearly two years and multiple designs.

The council voted 7-0 to override the CBD Historic District Landmarks Commission's denial of a demolition permit for the project at 744 St. Charles Ave. The site now contains a vacant single-story warehouse, which would be partially demolished.
