Hotel construction project gets new life

BROOKHAVEN — A stalled hotel construction project in Brookhaven has come back to life.

Developer Jackie’s International Inc. obtained a building permit last month to renew work on a proposed Holiday Inn Express near Interstate 55.

Construction has moved forward intermittently since then.

A company official told The Daily Leader of Brookhaven he hopes construction will be completed in May, with an opening date soon after. He said the poor economy had made financing the project difficult. Construction of the proposed hotel began in 2008 and stalled within a year.
