The downtown site of a former office supply business is where a New Orleans couple wants to build a seven-story hotel and condominium project.

Husband and wife Barry and Lorraine Dinvaut acquired the building at 744 St. Charles St. in June 2013. On Friday, they filed plans with the city for a $20 million project near Lafayette Square that will feature a restaurant and retail space on the ground floor with condos and hotel rooms on the upper floors.

According to the city’s design review permit, the project will require a height variance.
