Carrboro’s first hotel and parking deck will soon be under construction downtown.
The first phase of the 300 East Main development includes a 142-room Hampton Inn & Suites with 18,100 square feet of retail/restaurant space on the ground floor facing East Main Street. A 500-space parking deck will sit behind the hotel and provide free, public parking.
Construction of this phase will take about 14 months, the developers announced today in a news release. The first work, already begun, will demolish existing buildings at 304 and 404 E. Main St. and two empty houses on Padgett Lane and Boyd Street.
Developers will hold a groundbreaking ceremony later this month after demolition is complete, according to the news release.
