Hotel-Online and BuildCentral Add/Update 180 Hotel Projects to the New Hotel Construction Projects Database 

Chicago, IL. June 30, 2014 - Hotel-Online and BuildCentral have added or updated 180 hotel projects in the last two weeks to Hotel Construction, a nationwide database of hotel construction projects, openings, and key decision makers (Owner/Developers, Architects and Contractors).

These proposed hotels are still in the planning stages. Now is the perfect time to have your product drawn into plans, or offer construction services:

These new hotels will open within the next few months. If you offer a service for the hospitality industry, key contacts at these properties will want to hear your sales pitch now:

Each report provides a detailed profile of the project, including construction schedule, date of the hotel's opening and operation, location, value, name of chain and franchise, number of rooms, latest developments, and key contacts. Service providers and products suppliers use this information to gain access to decision makers at the precise time they are most likely making their purchasing decisions.

New project reports and lists of projects with upcoming construction start dates and opening dates are added to the database daily. Subscriptions start at only $399 per year. For more information or a free trial, visit http://hotels.buildcentral.com.

On 12/6/11, a representative of Wilson Hotel Management confirmed, that they are halfway through with their feasibility study to determine the need of a hotel for this location.  The feasibility study must be complete by the end of March 2012.

September 6, 2011

As of 9/6/11, the development will be eligible for federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds, and so the hotel will have to comply with certain restrictions. A representative from the city of Tuscaloosa (AL) stated that the purchase will either be a long-term note or cash. If the developer proceeds with cash, then it goes into the CDBG fund that the city can use for revolving loans for local businesses or any other eligible purpose.

September 6, 2011

As of 9/6/11, two companies -- Ivory Development Group and Wilson Hotel Management Co -- have submitted proposals for this project in response to the city's bid. A third company has withdrawn their bid and plans to build elsewhere. The developers are scheduled to meet with the City Council on 9/27/11 to formally pitch their ideas for the property. The Wilson group had previously announced that their hotel would be an Embassy Suites, but they have since said that they are still in negotiations for a brand.
