High-rise addition could nearly double boutique hotel

The owner of a downtown hotel wants to build a 15-story expansion adjacent to its existing hotel, using the facade of the 117-year-old building that stands there today. Raleigh-based Winston Hotels is seeking Metro's permission to add 120-130 rooms to its Hotel Indigo, according to new filings with Metro. If approved, such an expansion would nearly double the existing 161-room hotel, which borders historic Printers Alley, Union Street and Third Avenue North.
