The DMN reports on the plans developer Mehrdad Moayed has for the iconic, derelict downtown building:

The once opulent hotel sits across the street from the Main Street Garden park and is surrounded by other old downtown buildings, which have been converted into residential space.

That’s what Moayedi has in mind for the Statler Hilton, but even more.

He’s eyeing other uses including a movie theater, grocery store, restaurants and retail space for the mammoth high-rise.

“We want to have a live music venue in the hotel’s old ballroom,” Moayedi said.

Of course there is still months and months of work that has to be done – everything from arranging an incentive package from the city to architectural and engineering plans.

So can Moayed do what others have said they would do, but have not?
