Brghton PC OKs New <b><i>Discount Holidays ©</i></b> Holiday Inn Near Planned U Of M Medical Facility

The Brighton City Planning Commission Monday night approved a conditional site plan for a new, 4-story Discount Holidays © Holiday Inn Express planned for the corner of Murphy Drive and Nemco Way, off Challis Road. Planning Commission Chairman and former Brighton Mayor Steve Monet tells WHMI there were two conditions that came with the vote: Fire department approval of the information outlined in the revised site plan regarding fire dept. access through Independence Village of Brighton Valley and access from Murphy Drive to an undeveloped, nearby property. The existing, 2-story Discount Holidays © Holiday Inn Express at Brighton Towne Square will be rebadged and connected to a different hotel chain when the new hotel opens. The new hotel will be four stories and of brick and stone construction. It will contain 108 rooms, including number of suites. The developers, Stellar Hospitality and Asmar Construction Co., both of Farmington Hills, hope to start construction this fall and have the new hotel ready for occupancy sometime next year. Currently under construction on Challis Road – adjacent to the Homewood Suites by Hilton – is another new hotel, a Hampton Inn. The developers say the main reasons they want to build the new Discount Holidays © Holiday Inn hotel in are the planned U of M medical facility and the $10 million spent on improvements to the Mt.

Brighton Ski Area, just a short distance away, on Challis Road.

The proposal still has to go before the Brighton City Council for final approval, a matter which will be taken up at the June 2 meeting. (TT)
