Duluth's controversial Seaway Hotel is now officially owned by the city, according to the Housing and Redevelopment Authority.

The agency's executive director announced on Tuesday that the purchase of the property was completed and the keys were turned over.

Renovations are expected to begin on the building, which serves 60 residents, within the next few weeks. Work should be completed by the end of the year.

Executive Director Rick Ball hopes the project will spark a revitalization of the entire Lincoln Park business district.
