Minnesota extended stay hotel gets green light

US: An 87-key Candlewood Suites in Duluth has been granted approval.

Developer Detroit Lender LLC’s proposal for the five-storey property on Mundy Mill Drive was approved by the Oakwood City Council on Monday December 14.

Detroit Lender was seeking to change zoning from single-family residential and neighbourhood business to highway business.

The planning board recommended approval of the project in two votes – rezoning the property and allowing the extended-stay hotel as a special use for the property.

A measure passed by the city in June allows extended stay hotels but with restrictions, including that lodging in a room would be allowed for up to 15 consecutive days and a total of 30 days during a 180-day period. Those restrictions have some exceptions, including insurance proof showing a person or people have been displaced from their home because of a disaster, such as a fire.
