Construction at New Downtown Hotel Continues
COLUMBIA - Despite some hardships at downtown Columbia hotels, construction on the newest hotel continues.
Owner of the hotel, Dave Parmley said he doesn't think the Tiger Hotel will be much competition for his newest property . Although there will be some level of competition between the two hotels, he said the Hilton hotel on Broadway will draw a little bit of a different crowd.
Crews were unable to continue construction work on Friday October 5, 2012 due to the rainy weather, but on Monday they will pour concrete for the basement floor of the new site.
Although construction crews will be bringing in concrete trucks Monday morning, it shouldn't effect traffic downtown because the concrete will be poured from Walnut Street. Behind the hotel there is enough space for these trucks to park off of the street.
