Work is expected to begin during the first quarter of next year on the building of a 120-room hotel in downtown Colorado Springs.
The project will belong to the Pueblo-based AAA Hotel Developers, one of the most prominent developers of hotels in Colorado.
The new hotel, to go up at the intersection of E. Kiowa Street and Nevada Avenue, will include two restaurants: one on the ground floor and the other on the rooftop.
Additional plans call for the building of a fitness center, indoor swimming pool, and underground parking garage with enough space for 224 vehicles.
Last year the Colorado Springs City Council gave their approval to an ambitious urban renewal plan encompassing just over 80 acres in the downtown area that will include the construction of the new hotel.
AAA Hotel Developers has spearheaded hotel projects in the cities of Brighton, Durango, Golden, Lamar, and Pueblo, among other locations.
The company also redeveloped the more than fifty year-old former Tremont Center at W. Colfax Avenue in downtown Denver, adding three stories to what was a five-story structure, for the building of a hotel branded as a Staybridge Suites.
