Proposed luxury hotel might relocate to center city
A proposed luxury hotel for South Elm Street might move closer to the heart of downtown, city leaders said Monday.
The Ole Asheboro Neighborhood Association and developer Urban Hotel Group proposed using 2.8 acres of redevelopment property at South Elm and Lee Streets for the project. The $1.1 million sale of the land is scheduled to go to the City Council for approval next week .
But now the developer is considering three alternative locations and may have an agreement on one by Wednesday, said Melvin “Skip” Alston , a Guilford County Commissioner who is the real estate broker for the project.
