GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) A development company has released its plans for a historic hotel in downtown Garden City.
The Garden City Telegram reports that Vogel Properties wants to use the ground floor of the long-vacant Windsor Hotel for restaurant, retail and office space. The building also would contain 23 apartments for senior living.
The plan is winning praise from downtown business operators. Doug Harder, the co-owner of a coffee house and a computer sales and service store, says the plan as the only viable option presented in decades.
Downtown Vision Executive Director Beverly Schmitz Glass says the plan makes room for businesses that don’t need large spaces and provides more housing options. The group Glass heads promotes downtown and plans to use the hotel project to spur more redevelopment.
