The City of Superior could soon welcome a new 75-room hotel to their waterfront.

If a local developer’s request to build a waterfront hotel is approved by the City of Superior, the $9 million investment would become a reality.

Duluth-based ZMC Hotels hopes to begin construction this summer on the Hampton Inn & Suites at 103 East 2nd Street, which is between the Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center and Perkins Restaurant.

Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen said if the project receives the needed approvals, the hotel could open as soon as July 2015.

Hagen said the hotel would bring 15 full-time and 15 part-time employees.

“On Wednesday, June 11th, the Redevelopment Authority initiated this hotel development by creating the City of Superior Harbor Waterfront Hotel Project Area,” said Mayor Hagen in a written release. “That action, spurred on by the great leadership of Development Director Jason Serck, is the first step in making it possible for a proven, local developer to invest $9 million in Superior.”

The Redevelopment Authority will hold a public hearing regarding its proposed redevelopment plan at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 30, in Room 204 of the Government Center.
