WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Construction on the Hotel Indigo will likely start sometime in the first half of 2013, according to Kyle Myers, the project manager with USA InvestCo, the group behind the development.

Developers are expecting to get a formal letter soon from InterContinental Hotels Group that they have approved the final design of the building, which is located near the Convention Center.

Meantime, crews have started clearing the site to prepare for construction.

Myers said they still have to clear some hurdles with New Hanover County and the city of Wilmington, but the project is moving forward and close to being on schedule.

Dredging on a marina being built by the same will be finished in January, Myers said.

Plans are to open the marina by the end of the year.
