AC-T: Two hotels planned for BB&T property

Owners of the BB&T Building downtown say they will start work later this year on a 120-room hotel to be located where the building’s parking garage is now, according to reports by the Asheville Citizen-Times.

After that, work will begin to make the main building home to an upscale, boutique hotel with 150-170 rooms, MHG-Tower LLC said in a statement. Above the hotel would be six floors with vacation rentals and condominiums for sale.

The first hotel will be on the current site of a 351-space parking deck at the corner of Broadway and College Street. It will be an AC Hotel by Marriott, property owners said.
