GJ hotel owners may pursue fifth property

Reimers have Second and Ute parcel under contract, should tax increase pass

The owners of three downtown Grand Junction hotels who have committed to building a fourth hotel said this week they’ll erect a fifth property should voters sign off on a tax increase next month to build an event center.

Kevin and Steve Reimer have designs on a six-story, roughly 100-room hotel with a rooftop restaurant and bar that would be similar in size and scope to a Tru by Hilton hotel they intend to build on the south side of Colorado Avenue between Second and Third streets.
