New Hotel Plans
A developer hopes to break ground next spring on a major new hotel for downtown Asheville. Developer Tony Fraga has begun the planning process for the Cabria Suites Hotel, part of the Choice Hotels chain. Fraga already owns the property on the corner of Battery Park and Page Avenues. He plans to build the 14-story building on current site of the old Kostas building. Business owners say the new business would be welcome, but they're concerned about the months of construction ahead. A public meeting for nearby property owners will be held Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at Isa's Bistro. Fraga hopes to begin building in April, with construction wrapping up in 16 months.
