Hotel plans proceeding

WILMINGTON — The current health emergency and its economic fallout have not led to a change in plans for the construction of a new hotel in Wilmington this year, according to the architecture firm.

“We should be submitting for permit within the next week,” ALT Architecture Senior Associate Brian Weaver said Friday, April 3.

The planned five-story TownePlace Suites by Marriott hotel will be on Holiday Drive in Wilmington, between the existing Holiday Inn Express and the Hampton Inn & Suites.
