Demolition Clears Way For New Hotel

If you’ve walked or driven around Aggieville and the K-State campus lately, you may have noticed a cordoned-off portion of the block at the corner of Bluemont and North Manhattan Ave. “They’re starting to demolish those structures that are at the corner of Bluemont and North Manhattan Avenue. Once that demolition is done, and we’ve completed the plan review, there is planned to be a five-story hotel building on that corner,” said Brad Claussen, Building Official for the City of Manhattan. Once construction plans are approved, the City will issue a building permit and construction will begin on the new hotel.
