Landmark Hotel crane coming down
Landmark Hotel crane, we hardly knew ye. A mere seven months after this addition to the downtown skyline first wowed passers-by, the crane will be coming down on Friday with the hotel unfinished, according to a City press release. No word yet on what the crane's departure means for the long term future of the project, which workers had told the Hook was coming to a halt earlier this month. This revelation came two months after wrangling over the hotel's financing between owner Halsey Minor and lender Silverton Bank. Calls to Minor and his attorney were not returned at the time of this post.
