Millenium Hotel closing its doors next week

KTRS, St. Louis - The Millennium Hotel in downtown St. Louis has just one week left before it closes its doors.

 

Management says the hotel would need $80 million in upgrades to keep the hotel open, but no investors stepped up with the money. City officials say Millenium's owners will maintain water and utilities while the city determines the future of the building--there are currently no plans to tear it down.

 

80 employees will lose their jobs when the hotel closes in one week. The Millenium was once the largest hotel in St. Louis, but only 164 rooms remain in service.

While the interstate is closed, crews will relocate several utilities under the roadway as part of a project to construct a new interchange at Tower Grove and Boyle and replace four bridges over the interstate.

In addition, the ramps from Pine, Jefferson, Market and Grand to westbound I-64 will be closed during this time.

The detour for westbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Forest Park Avenue exit (exit 38A) and follow Forest Park Avenue to Kingshighway. After turning left onto Kingshighway, drivers will follow Kingshighway back to the interstate. The detour for eastbound I-64 will be to get off the interstate at the Hampton Avenue exit (exit 34B), turn right on Hampton and follow it to eastbound Interstate 44. Drivers can then take I-44 to the Poplar Street Bridge. Detour maps are available on-line at http://tinyurl.com/i64detour0113

The St. Louis Business Journal reports the Legends Country Club in Eureka is closing. Options to sell the Eureka club for $1.7 million or go semi-private already had been exhausted.

The paper spoke with Legends owner, Patricia Natoli, who inherited the club from her late father, Carmelo. She tells the Business Journal the family had already eliminated initiation fees, slashed dues and offered a summer special last year to drum up seasonal membership at the club which apparently consistently operated at a loss.
