Ocean City, Florida, is set to become the latest city in the US to open a hotel.
The city’s Hotel Park City will be open to the public by the end of the year and will have a number of amenities including a fitness center, a bar, and a lounge, according to the Associated Press.
The park is located on the city’s eastern edge, about an hour’s drive north of downtown Orlando.
It is set on private property, but the city plans to sell the property and move it into a hotel next month, according the AP.
It will be the first time that a city in Florida will be able to open an hotel in partnership with an offshore hotel, which has been operating for decades.
It’s an ambitious project, but Orlando-based hotel developer Michael Tamburini told the AP the company was looking to expand to other cities in the state.
He told the Associated Post: “It will open the doors for a new era of hospitality, and to expand our brand, to expand tourism and expand our economy.”
Hotel Park City has already been awarded the $2bn contract to build the hotel, according an AP report.
