From Hugh Bailey, CT Post:
A 120-room hotel will be constructed at Bridgeport’s Steelpointe Harbor development, the latest in a series of announcements highlighting progress at the long-stalled waterfront project.
Mayor Bill Finch unveiled the plans Thursday for a Hampton Inn, a Hilton brand that will be built following completion of work on the waterfront bulkhead, which is ongoing. The six-story building is to be designed with a nautical look, said Bob Christoph Jr, principal of Bridgeport Landing Development, which is part of Miami-based RCI Group.
“Hilton has given their approval to go ahead with the project,” Christoph said. “It’s exciting. It speaks volumes to where the project has gotten, and the comfort level that national and international brands have with coming to the city of Bridgeport.”
