New Lake Norman hotel to begin construction summer 2013

Construction could begin as early as late summer on a planned 16-story tower at the Langtree at the Lake project that would bring Lake Norman its first full-service hotel.

The roughly $90 million mixed-use tower would feature 212 hotel rooms, residences, retail and office space and an adjacent parking garage with entertainment space on top, according to the developer, RL West.

The company expects the high-rise to become a signature feature of its $1 billion Langtree project, which will feature residences, restaurants and retail space at Exit 31 of Interstate 77 in Mooresville.
