Groundbreaking ceremony held Oct. 1 for $28M hotel project at UMaine

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Oct. 1 at the University of Maine for a $28 million project to renovate Coburn and Holmes halls, two of the oldest buildings on campus, both of which have been unoccupied for more than a decade, and develop them into boutique hotels. With the construction of a new 24,800-square-foot building adjacent to Holmes Hall, the three buildings will provide 95 hotel rooms and suites, and a bistro cafe.
