Moyle Proposes New Hotel on Portion of Shopko Property
03/06/2020- The former Shopko property in Marinette is set to see further development if a plan to bring some new features to it pans out. The City’s Plan Commission approved a request Thursday to split the lot housing the recently-bankrupt chain store to allow Moyle Construction, the same company that intends to repurpose the Shopko building into climate-controlled storage, to pursue the possibility of constructing a new hotel on-site. Houghton-based Moyle also built Marinette’s Independence Stay and Comfort Inn and Suites. Though Plan Commission okayed the lot division, they’ll also have to review and sign off on site and architectural plans before any construction can begin.
