The Island Inn and Suites is proposing to build a hotel on 1000 Minnesota Avenue.

The company has applied before to build a nine story hotel, but their new design is smaller.

The new vision includes a 70 unit hotel with a lounge, pool and store located in the lobby area.

“Obviously the commercial demand within the city is very high,” Duluth director of planning Keith Hamre said. “Within the hotel industry a lot of them want to be as close as possible to Canal Park. That seems to be the draw, the water.”

This project will be reviewed at the upcoming planning commission meeting on Tuesday in City Hall.
