Price tag put on hotel project


A proposed hotel in the city’s Fort neighborhood will cost between $17 million and $20 million to build, according to Ariane Doud, a spokeswoman for Beauport Gloucester. Earlier this year, Beauport Gloucester, a company led by Jim Davis, the owner of New Balance Athletic Shoe Inc., announced plans to build a hotel on the former Birds Eye plant site at Pavilion Beach. In recent weeks, details of the plan have been released through public hearings held by the city. The proposal calls for rezoning the property to allow for a four-story, 102-room hotel. The Planning Board and a City Council subcommittee are reviewing the proposal, and plan to make recommendations to the City Council this spring. - Steven Rosenberg
