One of the developers of the expansive Legacy Farms project in Hopkinton is proposing an eight-story hotel to anchor a housing, retail, and office complex across town off Interstate 495 at West Main Street.

“We are proposing a mix of different uses that work in concert,” said Steven Zieff, with Wayland-based Eden Management Inc. “We want some level of vitality to return to the site.”

Zieff and his partner, Finley Perry, want a zoning change for the 56-acre site, which now has a mixture of undisturbed land and a large parking lot and office building that has been unoccupied for years.

The land is zoned for industrial use, and is in an overlay district that would allow a hotel, according to Elaine Lazarus, Hopkinton’s director of land use, planning, and permitting, who said it will be up to Town Meeting to decide whether to rezone the parcel to allow the mixed-use development.
