Franklin developer planning new Kansas City downtown hotel

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Franklin, Tenn., developer is planning the first new hotel building in downtown Kansas City since 1985.

Chartwell Hospitality LLC officials said Monday the company will break ground next year on a 257-room hotel in the Crossroads Arts District. The 10-story building would house a Marriott Courtyard and a Residence Inn.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1cczCYT ) the developer will not seek city tax incentives for the project. The cost of the hotel project was not disclosed, but company officials said it would be entirely privately financed.

The 190,000-square-foot hotel is expected to be completed by fall 2015.

Several hotels have opened downtown since 2000 but they are all in existing buildings that were renovated.

Chartwell is based in Franklin, Tenn., and owns about 30 hotels nationwide.
