Plattsburgh’s attempt to reshape its underused Lake Champlain waterfront took a step forward when the city council approved plans for an $11 million lakeside hotel.
Mayor Daniel Stewart said the 104-unit Hampton Inn will include a conference center and spa. And it will help change the image of the city that is home to the now-closed Plattsburgh Air Force Base.
Work on the hotel is not expected to begin until spring.
Tied to the project are plans for new parking downtown, as well as a retail unit and office development planned by Investment Corporation of Vermont.
