A proposed downtown Mankato motel will be discussed again tonight at the Mankato Economic Development Authority meeting. Downtown Mankato Properties wants to build a 117-room Marriott Hotel above the parking ramp of Cherry Street. The developers are now requesting an increased tax abatement for the property due to the rising estimates of the cost of building a hotel into and above the existing parking ramp as compared to the cost of constructing on vacant land. The meeting will begin at five-30 at Mankato Room of the Intergovernmental Center.
