BizSense has been looking into the future plans for the site at 5215 W. Broad St. for a month, but so far the owner hasn’t been interested in coming forward and divulging his plans.
Hourigan Construction has been doing work at the hotel building, which was operated most recently Inns of Virginia hotel. It has been closed for more than a year.
Currently a chain link fence surrounds the entire property. Most of the doors have been removed from the guestrooms, and you can catch a glimpse of left behind desks and beds.
The hotel was used as a filming location for the 1999 film Forces of Nature starring Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock.
I’m guessing its gonna be a church!!!!!
Word on the street is that it is going to be a nursing home. If I had the money I’d turn it into a locally owned, modern, boutique hotel.
Is their really a need for another Hotel on this part of Broad St. ??
