New Rochester Hotel Plan to be Presented This Week
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – The developer of a planned hotel at the Rochester American Legion site is scheduled to present the plans to the city Planning and Zoning Commission this week.
The EKN Development Group is proposing a 9 story hotel that would include 175 guestrooms, along with a restaurant, bar, swimming pool, fitness center and ground level meeting rooms.
The second and third levels would provide parking for a total of 95 vehicles.
A city spokesman says because the size of the project exceeds what is permitted in that part of the downtown, the developer would likely face an unknown number of conditions if it’s approved.
The commission meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM Wednesday (Oct 11) at City Hall.
