Carolina Beach Approves New Hotel Plan

CAROLINA BEACH-- In a three to two vote, the Carolina Beach Town Council approved plans last night for a new hotel.

Local developer Russ Maynard is building the hotel on an empty ocean front lot just north of the boardwalk.

The building will stand just over 100 feet tall and have close to 200 rooms.

Developers are now working on obtaining the appropriate permits.   They look to begin construction early next year.
