Mortenson Development is moving forward with a new hotel project near the First Avenue nightclub in downtown Minneapolis.

The Star Tribune reports Minneapolis-based ESG Architects will present preliminary plans to the Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association on Tuesday night.

The 210-room Hampton Inn & Suites is slated to be built on the corner of Eighth Street North and First Avenue South.

A Mortenson spokesman told the newspaper the number of rooms could change. He declined to say how much the project will cost.

Mortenson also won the bid for the new Vikings stadium in February.
