The New Jersey-based developer who wants to remake the Urbana Landmark Hotel Into a Hilton-branded property will introduce himself to Urbana on Monday night, March 13th.
Hotel developer Dionis Rodriguez of Crimson Rock Capital and renovation manager Bill Walsh of Walsh Associates, Inc. will make a brief presentation about their respective backgrounds and prior hotel projects at Monday’s 7 p.m. meeting of the Urbana City Council’s Committee of The Whole.
The hotel deal is in the final stages of negotiation and won’t be on the committee agenda for action. The meeting will take place at the Urbana City Building, 400 S. Vine St.
On Monday afternoon, Rodriquez and Walsh will meet privately with individual council members.
“This is an opportunity for the public to meet members of the talented team that would like to make Urbana’s downtown hotel a part of the Hilton Tapestry Collection,” said Mayor Laurel Prussing.
“I am excited by their strong track record and I hope that public and especially our downtown business and property owners will come out to show their support,” Prussing said.
