After eight years of delay, a new, 98-room, Holiday Inn Express, costing over $10 million, is slated to open in the spring at the Epiphany Tower building on lower State Street in the downtown.
Archbishop Timothy Paul Baymon, president of Epiphany Development Corp., a partner in the project since its inception, said the hotel should be ready to open in April of 2015.
The rooms are fully renovated and furniture is delivered, and façade improvements are completed including new windows, Baymon said. New sidewalks are installed along its exterior and additional parking was paved this week, he said.
The new hotel will create 50 jobs, Baymon said.
Take a look at some of the work thus far:
