Construction on the Rieger Lofts project could begin as soon as this fall. That is, if it all goes according to plan and developers get the loan they need.
The chances of that are 1 in 4. But city leaders are throwing their support behind the bid.
Developer Greg Spatz and architect Jonathan Sandvick met with city commissioners Dave Waddington and Pervis Brown on Wednesday night to discuss the future of the historic downtown hotel.
The duo said they hope to transform the Rieger into apartments for residents 55 years and older, with retail on the ground floor.
