FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Construction is about to begin on another hotel along Dupont Road.

The $35-million project includes a 172-room hotel at 10650 Diebold Road.

The hotel will feature the Hilton Garden Inn and Home2 Suites by Hilton brands and a retail center.

"We are thrilled to welcome even more visitors to the Fort Wayne area," said Jason Patel, president and CEO of Blue Flame Hospitality. "Our family has built, owned, and operated multiple hotels here over the past 30 years. This is our largest project to date, and we can't wait to get started."

The hotel is just the latest development surrounding Parkview Regional Medical Center.

Another hotel is being built on the south side of Dupont Road and Mike's Carwash is opening next month.

A ground breaking ceremony for the new hotel will be Tuesday at 4 p.m.
