Construction for new hotel could be finished by January | Business
Construction is still on schedule at the site of one of Owensboro's newest hotels.
Crews say the Hampton Inn that will be next to the Convention Center is expected to officially open around the same time as its neighbor in early January.
By mid-May, the brick coating should start, and the goal is to have the building dubstantially completed by October.
"We have a great team here that is so dedicated to this project, and they realize it's more than building a hotel," says Developmer, Malcolm Bryant as he explains the driving force behind all the work. "We're building a piece of history for this community that will be around for generations."
Crews are still working on finishing up the geo-thermal installation since the hotel will be using natural energy.
Bryant says that's helping to meet sustainability goals.
