Not downtown Raleigh, per Triangle Biz Journal. This is ridiculous. Look, i get North Hills, but it sounds like this is going to be a 20+ story project on the old Soleil Center space. This is so stupid.
A decade has passed since the untimely demise of the 43-story Soleil Center hotel project next to Crabtree Valley Mall, but activity could soon be returning to the site.
A posting on the website of Westin Hotels & Resorts says the project is slated to open in June of next year. Another website, this one managed by Westin’s parent company, lists the project as well, citing a 2019 opening.
The property is owned by Shamin Hotels of Chester, Va., which bought it at auctionin 2015 after the previous owners fell into financial troubles during the recession. Since then, Shamin Hotels has provided few details on the property’s future and didn’t return calls for this story.
The timeline laid out online would be aggressive, as construction hasn’t begun yet. But building permits have been issued for site work at the property.
