Hotel selection advisory committee public meeting

As most of you read here and here, Indianapolis is adding an enormous downtown hotel that will dramatically alter the landscape of our city. Tomorrow, the selection committee is hosting a public meeting to answer questions and receive input. I encourage everyone to go who may want to suggest an emphasis on design. Our baby I.M. Pei came crashing down last night, let's work on getting something spectacular to replace it!

Here are the details for tomorrow's meeting:

The Indianapolis Local Public Improvement Bond Bank's Hotel Selection Advisory Committee will host a public meeting to receive input, opinion and comment from stakeholders and the general public on the proposed downtown convention hotel developments.

WHEN: Tuesday, November 14
3 p.m.

WHERE: Indiana Convention Center
Room 138

The Hotel Selection Advisory Committee is currently reviewing three proposals for a new downtown convention hotel. Browning Marcus Joint Venture is proposing to build an Intercontinental Hotel located at Pan Am Plaza. Starwood/Host Hotels is proposing to expand the existing Westin. Whiteco Industries is proposing to build several Marriott-brand hotels, including a JW Marriott, on the southwest corner of West and Washington Streets.

In September, Mayor Bart Peterson appointed the seven-member advisory committee to gather more information about the three remaining proposals.

The advisory committee is scheduled to deliver a recommendation to the Bond Bank and the City of Indianapolis later this month.
