Renewed planning permission is being sought to put up a 116-bedroom hotel in Bridge Avenue in Maidenhead.
An outline application was submitted to the Royal Borough on Wednesday on behalf of Aeos Projects LLP for the six-storey building.
It would replace four existing detached buildings on the same side of the road as KFC, which were originally designed as houses but have also been used as offices since the 1970s.
Permission was originally granted for the hotel in June 2009 by the borough but has since expired.
The application submitted included surface and parking for 20 cars, a separate shelter for motorbikes and bicycles and three disabled parking bays.
The proposal was also set to include environmentally sustainable features such as a 'green roof' to provide a habitat for wildlife.
At the time a number of objections were received from neighbours of the properties, whose concerns included the height of the building, the traffic and the extra noise.
Plans are also afoot to build a Premier Inn hotel in Kidwells Park Drive.
A decision on the application is due by September 5.
