Hotel proposed over Canal

A Kansas developer has proposed a hotel, restaurant and retail space that would form a bridge over the Ponte VecchioCentral Canal in the tradition of Ponte Vecchio in Florence, Italy (pictured). The plan is one of four submitted for a state-owned parcel along the Canal between Ohio and New York streets. “To become the heart of this diverse community we felt that more-of-the-same would not be adequate,” developers LodgeWorks LP said in a filing with the state. They did not include a rendering. The project would require the state throw in a parking lot next to the Indiana History Center.
