Nanaimo approves development permit for $34M downtown hotel
Quote:
At long last, it looks as though Nanaimo will get the downtown hotel it has been dreaming of, with council unanimously approving a development permit for a $34-million project.
PEG Development of Utah is buying a site from the City of Nanaimo for $750,000 to build a nine-storey hotel. The city’s hope is that it will help to foster tourism, add vitality to the core and attract more conventions to the adjacent Vancouver Island Conference Centre.

I have not heard that the project is dead.

It could be dead for all I know but it seems a bit premature to say it is dead.

You're right, it isn't dead.

I messaged the company and they said they've already purchased the land and they're redesigning it which explains why it isn't on their website. As i'm sure many felt the same way, I wasn't crazy about the design so hopefully they come up with something nicer architecturally while keeping it at 9 stories instead of the previously proposed 6 stories, and find a way to connect it to the conference center.
