New hotel construction underway on south beach

Clearwater Beach, Florida -- Get ready for another new hotel on the south beach.

Foundation work started in earnest this week for a new high-rise hotel at Coronado and Devon drives. The area is the site of two former low-rise hotels demolished last year, and is next to the Sea Captain Resort.

So far, the builder has applied for only a building foundation permit with the city. A permit for vertical construction is yet to come, the city reports.

"Permits are to be picked up in next 10 or 12 days and contract calls for hotel to be delivered in January of next year," stated city spokesperson Joelle Castelli. "So, it's coming out of the ground very soon."

The franchise agreement for who will operate the hotel is still being negotiated, the city said. Initially, the site was planned for a Holiday Inn, but later changed to a Hampton Inn.
