New hotel taking shape downtown

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A new hotel is being built in downtown Evansville.

The framework is up for the new Hyatt Place.

The new hotel is going up on southeast Second and Chestnut Streets, where the old Scottish Rite use to be.

This is an $18-million project and the city hopes it draws more people downtown.

Developers say the goal is to have it open for business by the end of the summer.
