There are Holiday Inns all over the land but not a one in Downtown. A Bridgeville developer is hoping to change that.
The Forza Group will brief the city planning commission Tuesday on a proposal to build an eight-story, 99-room Holiday Inn at 435 Fort Pitt Blvd. near Smithfield Street. The plan also includes a bar and restaurant and limited parking, nine spaces in all.
In documents filed with the planning commission, Forza said it hopes to have the $9 million project completed by June 2015.
“There’s really no [Holiday Inn] presence in the Downtown Pittsburgh area,” said Brock Hunt, Forza’s director of franchise relations. The closest is a Holiday Inn Express and Suites on South 10th Street, South Side.
