Plans have been announced for the construction of a new hotel and much-needed conference space in Los Alamos.
The project, to be developed by the Albuquerque-based TNJLA, Incorporated, would see the construction of 86 new rooms, as well as a conference center able to accommodate up to 300 people.
The development will be branded as a Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
TNJLA is currently trying to secure property belonging to Los Alamos County for the project, in compliance with Local Economic Development Act guidelines.
The 3-acre site in question is located just off what is called the 20th Street Extension.
Members of the Los Alamos County Council are now in the process of trying to decide whether to approve an ordinance that will allow for the county to turn the land over to TNJLA.
A part of that process will also see the company entering into a Project Participation Agreement with the county.
The ordinance question could be decided by council members in late August.
TNJLA has spearheaded the development of similar hotel projects in Albuquerque, Carlsbad, and Hobbs, among other locations.
