WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington City Council has granted another extension for the company developing a hotel to be built next to the Wilmington Convention Center.
Harmony Hospitality requested to extend its agreement at Monday's City Council meeting.
The agreement, which ran out April 30, has been extended 90 days to provide more time for details to be worked out, including the hotel's design and Harmony's land purchase agreement for an Embassy Suites Hotel with the city, as well as financing.
The proposed Embassy Suites Hotel will have 186 rooms and stand about as tall as the Hilton Wilmington Riverside a few blocks away. The hotel is estimated to have a $33.6 million price tag, according to city leaders.
This is the third time City Council has granted Harmony an extension on the agreement.
