Developers of Global Premium Hotels' $80 million Fragrance Launceston hotel are continuing to work through requests for further information from the City of Launceston before the full plans can be released.
The plans were submitted to council in early September and several concept designs were released in early October, when the architect believed the development application's full release was just days away.
The council sought additional information, believed to largely focus on streetscape issues.
A project spokesperson said they were confident the development application could be released for public comment in the near future.

"We're currently working through the RFI process," he said.
"We remain most optimistic these matters can be addressed quickly.
"We look forward to getting on with what we think is a vitally important project for the Launceston community."
The mandated time period for council to assess the plans pauses while it waits for the developer to respond to the RFI request.
The Fragrance proposal would be Launceston's first five-star hotel, taking in the old Alfred Harrap & Son wool sellers site and old Clarion Hotel on Tamar Street.
The warehouse part of the hotel would contain 230 rooms, and the Clarion would have 59 rooms. The Harrap building would become a function centre space with restaurants and bars.
