Ramada wants to rise in Dallas
City council will decide on Tuesday, Aug. 21, whether to renew a development permit for an 80-room Ramada hotel in the Gateway Travel Centre in Dallas.
The original permit, now expired, was issued in 2009 for 3-175 Kokanee Way and would have allowed for construction of a four-storey hotel.
It’s the second development permit issued for the site since the property was created following a highway realignment.
In 2003, council issued a permit for a five-storey, 100-room hotel on the site, which also expired.
Development permits are valid for a maximum of two years.
According to a report by city staff that supports a renewal of the permit, there are no technical concerns arising from the hotel, and its “arrangement of features is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.”
