McKibbon Hotel Group
The 18-story former BB&T bank and office building will become home to a new boutique hotel, condos, restaurant space and more.
How will the vote go?
The name "Vandre Nouveau Hotel" is out. A new name will be announced in coming weeks.
The remodeling will also add two new restaurant spaces to downtown Asheville.
A lawsuit filed by other downtown hotel owners dissuaded McKibbon.
McKibbon, which just opened the Aloft Hotel and plans to build another across from the U.S. Cellular Center, plans to remake the 17-story BB&T into a boutique hotel.
Hotel? Park? Plaza? Hotel.
Asheville City Council is expected to end the development debate on Sept. 11.
