NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - Construction on the former Eola Hotel has been delayed by damage to the building, but work is expected to begin this fall.

The historic Eola Hotel was purchased in 2014 by Virginia attorney Robert Lubin. His plans to renovate and transform the building into senior-living apartments were approved by the city in April.

A draft of the construction plan was presented to the Natchez Planning commission in January and received approval in April.

The local attorney representing the Eola project, Tony Heidelberg, originally presented the plan for the restoration to the Natchez Planning Commission in January, but the application was rejected because it did not include enough publicly accessible space on the first floor.

Lubin tells The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/295vDW1) the project is now back on track and is in the process of receiving funding.
