Oread Inn to seek changes to plan
City commissioners are being asked to give approval to the closing of a road and some minor changes to construction plans for The Oread Inn, a seven-story hotel near 12th and Indiana streets.
Developers are presenting a new plan that would close Indiana Street from 11th Street to 12th Street for much of the summer. The closure is needed, developers said, to give construction crews the necessary room to safely build an underground parking garage. The developers also are asking to vacate three feet of right of way for Indiana Street.
The vacation would allow the entire hotel to be shifted three feet farther to the west. The shift also is needed to accommodate the construction of the underground parking garage.
