June 18–Early construction has begun on a new hotel near the Rose Music Center at The Heights in Huber Heights.
Footers and cement work are in place, said Donnie Jones, Huber Heights assistant city manager.
"I think all the ground work is either finished or underway," Jones said Monday.
A building permit filed with the city of Huber Heights gives the value of the project as $6 million and identifies the contractor as Alpha Construction. The address is 7000 Executive Blvd.
The hotel will be branded Tru by Hilton. The concept involves smaller, efficiently designed rooms with larger lobbies, approaching 3,000 square feet, offering room for work and games.
Hilton describes Tru as "a brand-new hotel experience from Hilton that's vibrant, affordable and young-at-heart."
The site's developer, LAXMI Hospitality LLC, will construct a multi-story hotel with 88 to 100 rooms, City Manager Rob Schommer told this news outlet last month.
