VUMAC SALE FINALIZED

‘This is a glorious day for Blackstone’

HOTEL GROUP MOVES AHEAD WITH PLANS

After sitting idle for more than four years, the former Virginia United Methodist Assembly Center has been purchased by a hotel group that plans to spend several million dollars transforming the old Blackstone College building into a 110-room independent hotel.

Kenbridge-based DMM Properties LLC, an entity that includes local businessman Louis DeNitto, last week sold the old college building and about 11.5 acres to Blackstone Hotel Partners, LLC of Chester for $875,000. A deed was recorded Thursday at Nottoway Courthouse.

“This is a glorious day for Blackstone,” DeNitto remarked this week.

The buyer is affiliated with Kalyan Hospitality, which earlier this year received rezoning from Town Council to accommodate its plans here.
