After years of planning and development, the Bellefonte waterfront project appears to be just months away from entering a new phase of construction. Gary Sinderson has details. The heart of the waterfront project is here a four acre field that stood vacant for well over a decade. In 2006 fire cleared this space. Now in its place, a new hotel. "There are three structures, one is a hotel, when is a parking structure. And one will be a condominium building, all three buildings have space on the" preliminary project plans were approved last week. They are planning to close on the property next week. "It can really bring us right into a total renaissance event in Bellefonte." That is the hope here, that the hotel, along with the restaurant and offices and parking garage and a nearby apartment building will bring tourists and new business to downtown. "We are looking at the impetus for more additional redevelopment. We have the academy property that is sitting vacant so that there are some partials that we hope that this will draw attention to."
