New Radisson planned for Tallahassee, Fla., in former Ramada

A Ramada hotel in Tallahassee, Fla., that was shut down more than four years ago could soon be reopened as a Radisson after a Minnesota-based company filed permit requests with the city to transform the property at North Monroe and Interstate 10, WTXL reports.

The unnamed developer is proposing a 186-room Radisson Hotel and Conference Center. The main building would be renovated and a fifth floor added to the east wing of the complex. It currently has four floors. Of the 186 rooms, 110 rooms will be newly constructed; the remaining 76 would be renovated.

In documents filed with the city, developers estimate it could take up to 12 months to complete the project.
