The developer of the Fountain Walk complex at Aquarium Wharf, home of the shuttered Charleston IMAX theater, has applied for a zoning change that would allow the property to be used for a hotel.

John Rivers of Rivers Enterprises, which operated the 415-seat theater for seven years before shutting it down in 2007, said he has no specific plans for the property and is seeking the zoning change because it would allow a wider range of options for the site.

Charleston Planning Director Christopher Morgan said the city staff is recommending that the Planning Commission approve the change at a meeting tonight.

“It would allow someone to put a hotel on that property,” Morgan said. “The owners wanted the flexibility to have that kind of use. At this point there is nothing definite.”
