The groundbreaking for the first hotel at WestGate@Crane Technology Park took place in Odon on April 18.. The $7-million Sleep Inn and Mainstay-branded hotel will employ more than 20, Inside Indiana Business reported.
The new hotel is situated just west of the Battery Innovation Center. Plans include 72 units, meeting space, a business center and fitness center.
“This new hotel will serve the park, the tens of thousands of people that attend various events at WestGate Academy each year, the BIC’s global clientele and initiatives, NSWC Crane and the greater southern Indiana region along the Interstate 69 Corridor,” Green County Economic Development executive director Brianne Jerrels was quoted as saying.
WestGate@Crane Technology Park is the only tech park in the state that includes parts of three counties (Davies, Greene and Martin).
