Midway approved to develop downtown Midland hotel

Council approves hotel project by a 4-2 vote | 12.10.2019

The Midland City Council on Tuesday approved a deal that would bring a “four-star hotel” to downtown.

After more than two hours of discussion, the council passed by a 4-2 vote a $28.6 million incentive package – the city’s $8 million for a 400-space parking garage and $20.6 million in incentives from the Midland Development Corp.

The project by Midway Companies calls for 200 guest rooms, ballroom and meeting space of approximately 14,000 square feet on land formerly occupied by the Building of the Southwest, and ground floor retail and restaurant space of approximately 10,000 square feet.
