It’s Official: Hammons is Building Another Hotel

December 17, 2004 at 2:12am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

The Lincoln Journal Star is reporting that John Q. Hammons, owner of the Embassy Suites in Downtown Lincoln, is planning to build a 4-story, $16 million Residence Inn on the block bounded by 17th, 18th, P, and Q Streets. It is being advertised as the first private investment into the Antelope Valley Project. That block is on the far western edge of Antelope Valley.

Some serious questions need to be answered about how Hammons plans to acquire the land needed to build the hotel. Most of the owners of property on that block found out about the hotel today just like the rest of us. I hope Lincoln doesn’t wander down the slippery road of eminent domain abuse. Stay tuned…
