As part of the continuing improvement effort to Hillsborough Street, we're now seeing news about a new premier hotel intended for the area across from the NCSU Memorial Bell Tower.
"The project by Bell View Partners and The Bernstein Cos. will include a 125-room premium hotel that will cater to university and Raleigh visitors. The hotel will be complemented by street-level retail shops and a signature restaurant, officials said.
The new hotel will be on Hillsborough Street between Enterprise Street and Maiden Lane on a 1.3-acre site owned by the University Endowment Fund. The project will also encompass the Hillsborough Square parking lot next to David’s Dumplings and Players Retreat, as well as the former location of Darryl’s restaurant."
No word yet on timing, but read the rest of the story on WRAL.
