Work began about a year ago and it is on schedule to be completed in the spring of 2019. The 20 story building will include 264 hotel rooms along with banquet and commercial space.

DMC Economic Development Agency Executive Director Lisa Clarke told the gathering this is a special project for several reasons. Clark says it is very important to the DMC initiative because it was the “very first to go through the process.”
