Council members unanimously approved a nearly $7.5 million tax incentive for the new Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center to be built at Freedom Plaza.
The package includes the tax incentive and up to $500,000 in rebates for shopping local during construction.
Construction on the 13-acre development off Diehl Road and I-88, consisting of a 168-room Embassy Suites Hotel, a 13,000 square foot ballroom, and four freestanding restaurants begins in August.
The agreement lasts for 20 years after they open or until the $7.472 million, whichever happens first.
