OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Owensboro's Gateway Commons has another new project in the works.

The Gateway Commons is continuing to grow this time with its first hotel: A Townplace suites. It's an extended stay hotel perfect for being so close to the hospital.

The Marriott Hotel has kitchenettes in each room, laundry, workout facilities, and an outdoor pool.

William Knight with Envision Contractors says it's the perfect area for the hotel.

"It's very good I think for this community because we have more shops," Knight said. "We need to keep it within our community."

Knight tells us the construction is going very well, and they plan to open the hotel in December.
