Developer Barry Allen of Vol for Life Company is planning a new hotel with restaurant, retail and event center in downtown Wheeling, West Virginia. The $63 million project would replace the former Wheeling Coffee & Spice Co. and National Equipment Co. buildings at Wheeling’s waterfront. The hotel’s design is still being finalized with a restaurant and coffee shop being planned for the building’s first floor. Other floors will feature dedicated retail space, a 2,600-square-foot event center, 122 guest rooms and also eight condominiums, including an almost 3,000-square-foot condo overlooking the Ohio River. The building will also include rooftop bar and entertainment area. Work would begin in December of 2024 and be complete in April of 2026. Mill Group is the project Architect.
