A new hotel may soon be going up on the current site of a former police annex building in downtown Pueblo.
AAA Hotel Developers, which has developed and operates a host of hospitality facilities in other Colorado locations, is asking for city approval to build at 150 Central Main Street.
Members of the Pueblo City Council have recently approved spending $190,000 to demolish the one-story 1970s-era annex, which is owned by the city.
Although a California real estate developer has also submitted a proposal to build a hotel at the same site, AAA Hotel Developers, which is based in Pueblo, has told the city it is better qualified to take on the project.
If constructed, the new hotel will be part of larger project in Pueblo to create a kind of baseball district that will also include a nearby new stadium.
Although specific details regarding AAA Hotel Developer’s plans for the Central Main Street site have not been released, the company’s experience in hotel development is extensive.
It has developed national brand hotels in the cities of Golden, Lamar, and Pueblo, and is currently in the process of planning for the construction of a 72-room Towne Place Suites, which will go up across from Pueblo’s Historic Arkansas Riverwalk.
