Construction to start on Wilmington, N.C., Hotel Indigo in early 2013

The Greater Wilmington Business Journal reports that construction the Hotel Indigo remains on schedule and the hotel's opening remains slated for 2014. A. Kyle Myers, the project manager overseeing the hotel’s construction in the Northern Riverfront Marina and Hotel development along Nutt Street, said that USA InvestCo crews have started clearing the site for the $25-million boutique hotel. Plans call for a 125-room, 10-story hotel with retail space.

Planned amenities include a first-floor restaurant, rooftop pool and lounge area with a sky roof, a ninth-floor flex meeting space and suites with views of the river and downtown.

Myers said officials were awaiting final feedback and approval from the Intercontinental Hotel Group, which owns the Hotel Indigo franchise, regarding Wilmington’s branding for the hotel.
