PLYMOUTH – Work has begun and city officials hope it will continue, on the hotel site north of the city of Plymouth.
City of Plymouth Building Commissioner Keith Hammonds confirmed for WTCA news that the new owners of the hotel have indeed begun work on the structure ending years of stagnancy on the site. The hotel site was purchased by new ownership almost a month ago and the new owners are anxious to have the building up and running.
“They only put the shell of that building up orginally before they quit construction,” said Hammonds. “Right now there are electricians and plumbers at work inside trying to get plumbing and wiring in to move the construction along.”
When completed the hotel will be a Comfort Suites hotel. While there is no actual timetable in place for when the new hotel will be open Hammonds says the owners have given an ambitious open date.
“They told me that they hope to have the hotel up and running in time for this year’s Blueberry Festival,” said Hammonds.
The site was one targeted by Plymouth Mayor Mark Senter in his effort to “clean up” problem or derelict properties around the city.
“So far so good,” Senter commented on the activity at the hotel.
