Eau Claire (WQOW) – The Eau Claire Plan Commission has signed off on a plan to turn the former Hope Gospel Mission building into apartments.

The owners of the building across from the library want to turn the building into 14 apartments, with seven on each floor, as well as community lounge space and a patio. The plan called for the building is to have high-end aesthetics with as much exposed beams and brick as possible.

According to the proposal, the owners also plan to donate land to the city to build a bike trail from the building to the Eau Claire River.

Meanwhile, the plan commission signed off on a site proposal for a new hotel on the city’s northeast side. Princeton Ridge Properties submitted a site plan for a Residence Inn by Marriott to be located on Princeton Ridge Drive just off of North Crossing. The plan calls for a four-story hotel with 107 rooms. There is no word on when work will begin.

Also new Monday, the owner of the Kaiser Building is one step closer to turning the local landmark into a tavern. Monday, the plan commission signed off on a the conditional use permit, allowing the remodel to begin.
