What's being built in Avery?

I see they’re breaking ground in Avery next to the Turnpike, can you tell us what it’s going to be? — Don on 250

It took us awhile to hunt this one down, Don. The building project you're seeing is slated to be a new Hampton Inn. Reporter Melissa Topey is still getting the details on the new hotel project. She expects to have a story about it in the Register sometime late this week or early next week.

Ummm. There is already a Hampton Inn there. Will they be taking the old one down or reflaging it as something else? I thought they just remodeld that hotel within the past 2 or 3 years.

The new hotel will be a Hampton Inn and Suites. The old hotel will remain a regular Hampton Inn, though it could have a brand change in the future. They are owned by the same people.

Build yet another NEW hotel, while others sit completely empty and unused? I will NEVER understand how or why this is so common.

It's cheaper to build than to buy permits to tear down property and dispose of all the materials it was made from. If you don't believe me, ask yourself why hasn't anybody bought the APEX Building?

Yes. It is national policy to allow people to permanemtly spoil the land and walk away, leaving a shambles behind for the taxpayer to clean up, or not, if the funds can't be found. It is as if future generations have no rights at all.

It's because we have a corrupt system of perfectly-legal "campaign contributions" to pay for tax laws that subsidize hotels, shopping centers and office buildings so that they're built in far greater numbers than actually needed. That and stupid land use policies create our awful urban sprawl that wastes good farmland and ruins city centers.

I do not how anyone can stay at any of those places near Certainteed, with all of that smell.

@ Old Dog
They put them up for tourists. Who cares if it smells. :)
