Mason City council tonight to get update from hotel developer for River City Renaissance project

MASON CITY — The City Council in Mason City this evening will hold a workshop session to hear a presentation from the developer of the hotel that’s part of the River City Renaissance project.

Gatehouse Mason City LLC was chosen back in November to be the developer after G8 Development was found to be in default of their agreement with the city. The hotel is a key component as it fulfills the private investment portion of the $39 million project being supported through the Iowa Reinvestment Act.

The council will hear a presentation and update from Gatehouse on the hotel at 5:30 in the second floor conference room at City Hall.

At 6:30, Gatehouse representatives and Mason City Foundation board members will hold an open house at Music Man Square, with the public being invited to ask questions and see architectural renderings of the project.
