Anchorage Daily News reporter Alex DeMarban writes that a new hotel and apartment project will be developed in the downtown transit center of Anchorage.
A boutique hotel will soon begin to rise on a downtown Anchorage block that’s now home to the bus terminal and parking garages, sprucing up the site and supporting the growing tourism industry, project organizers say.
Hotel Indigo, a national chain, will operate the 178-room, aviation-themed hotel along Sixth Avenue between G and H streets. The 13-story building will be the first major hotel construction in Anchorage since the Anchorage Marriott Downtown was built in 1998, tourism officials said.
DeMarban also adds that numerous part of the building, including hotel rooms and apartments, will be pre-built in China to speed up construction.
