A consultant said the best success would be a public-private venture with a hotel.
Alpharetta's consultant researching the viability of a convention and conference center told City Council a joint public/private project with a hotel has the most chance for success. Mark Woodworth, president of PKF Consulting, also told council the 25 performing arts centers in the region make it unlikely another one in Alpharetta could be successful. "We've done a considerable amount of work over these past three plus or minus months," Woodworth said. He said the study envisions the project would become operational on or about January 2016.

'Squeaky clean' chain finds new financing after first bank was closed by the FDIC.
Contractors are heading back to the unfinished hotel on McFarland Road off GA 400 exit 12 to get the Value Place hotel open as early as June 1.

The FDIC and the state closed the bank, and it took time to unravel the financing and find a new bank. “Due the FDIC taking over the original local bank, construction was stalled. We have since obtained new financing from Equity Bank and construction resumed on Feb. 1,” said Value Place President and COO Kyle Rogg. Pat Cook Construction Inc. has been selected as the general contractor to complete the property. Redfern said the hotel construction resumed around Feb. 1. "We have 175 …
