Town Council this past Monday night (Jan. 27th) unanimously approved rezoning that will let developer Nick Patel of Richmond transform the old VUMAC building into a 110-room boutique hotel. Mr. Patel, whose group owns and operates 15 hotels, told Council that completion will take one to two years. Mr. Patel didn’t mention what the hotel will be called, but I think “The Inn at Blackstone College” or “The Blackstone College Inn” has a nice ring to it!
