According to the management of the Lewis Grand Hotel there is no truth to the rumor that the Lewis Grand Hotel is up for sale and the financing for the "Penthouse" is solid. This is very good news. The statement sent to me reads:
"Hi Harry, The "financing" of the Penthouse Hotel is secured, and has been for some time. The whole project might eventually be taking a bit longer then originally anticipated, but this does NOT have the owners considering selling the Lewis Grand
to "be able to raise and come up with the money".
So there you go, all is well with the Lewis Grand Hotel (LGH) and the Penthouse. That makes me happy as I am having my 75th Birthday Party at the LGH and I better see Lewis there with drink in hand. I also look forward to the completion of the Penthouse and I bet a few of those original folks who purchased condo units when it was known as the Lexus will be very happy as well. Man, I want to see Lewis at the front door with a big pair of scissors for the ribbon cutting and I want to enjoy the view from the top floor swimming pool.
I will try to obtain an up to date estimated completion date for the Penthouse so I can mark my calendar. I do not want to be out of town for the opening.
