The new downtown Evansville hotel project reaches a major milestone.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke will lead a topping off ceremony at the site of the Hilton Double Tree on Tuesday afternoon.
This means that construction has reached the highest piece of framework for the building, and the project is one step closer to completion.
Winnecke will be joined by representatives from the construction company in charge of building the hotel and convention center next to the Ford Center.
We’re told the 240 room facility is on track to be complete by mid-December.
Tuesday’s ceremony is set for 2:00 p.m.
