TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Tacoma officials say they are moving forward with plans to sell or lease the Old City Hall building for the development of a boutique hotel.

KCPQ-TV reports (https://goo.gl/wQxIou) that officials expect to negotiate agreements with McMenamins of Portland in coming weeks to develop the 60-room hotel, a restaurant, bars and other businesses.

McMenamins - a chain of breweries, music venues and historical hotels - plans to add the boutique hotel in the Old City Hall, along with four bars, a rooftop restaurant, event spaces and a gift shop.

The city of Tacoma purchased the Old City Hall building in June for $4 million.

Mayor Marilyn Strickland said in a news release that the proposed development will be a boost to Tacoma’s economy.
