The New Bedford Economic Development Council announced that the boutique hotel we first learned about a couple of years ago, is finally breaking ground!

The story Fun 107 wrote on this project last year had us looking at a completion date of 2018.  The private investment firm, the Columbus Group LLC, will be renovating the vacant 46,600-square-foot building into the 68-room hotel.

It seems as though plans are the same and the hotel will hopefully be up and running in the next two years.
