Oak Creek — After several stalled attempts, plans for a Four Points Sheraton hotel in the city are again being formulated.
This time, however, the project is under different management and proposed to be constructed in the Drexel Town Square development.
Plans to construct a Four Points Sheraton were stymied in 2012 after the city learned the previous developer, Syner G, was involved in a foreclosure suit. A second round of plans were grounded in March, 2013, after the Syner G-backed hotel was found to be 20 feet too tall for FAA restrictions.
This time, the proposal is by Salita Development, according to Eric Nordness, managing partner at Salita.
Salita has yet to present its proposal to the Plan Commission, which will need to approve building plans before construction can begin, or the Common Council, which will need to approve a financing plan.
The developer would like to build a 108-room, four-story hotel in the eastern portion of Drexel Town Square. The earlier proposals would have seen a similarly sized hotel at Howell and College avenues, which caused traffic concerns among city officials.
Doug Seymour, director of community development, said the hotel would provide a second anchor to the site, with Meijer being the first.
"It's an important piece ... (in) the ultimate development and is happening according to plan," he said.
