A 2009 inspection conducted by Walker Restoration Consultants as part of a study on parking needs in the Central Business District rated the general condition of garage as "poor" and recommended replacement.

Isn't this the site of the proposed hotel? If so, is the city partnering with the hotel for this garage replacement?

I cannot find a reference, but I did read not too long ago that the garage will *not* be connected to the hotel.

JYP...it's the same block. There have been discussions about assembling an "L" shaped site for both the hotel and garage, but it's sounding more and more like it will be done separately.
