The foundation has been laid on a new multi-million dollar hotel being built along Bell Boulevard and Wallbridge Loyalist Road in Belleville.
Shovels hit the ground last month on the new Hampton by Hilton, formerly known as Hampton Inn. The five story, 100 suite hotel has a construction value of $9.3 million.
The developer of the hotel also erected the gas bar just north of the site.
Belleville chief building official Ted Marecak says he projects more activity to take place along the north Bell Boulevard strip given the recent opening of the Shorelines Casino Belleville.
