New Development Project Underway in Branson

NOVEMBER 23, 2004 - Posted at 4:57 p.m. CST

 

BRANSON, MO - Efforts to turn downtown Branson into a shopping and entertainment district are beginning to take shape.

The Board of Aldermen in the southwest Missouri resort town voted last night to negotiate a contract with Hilton Hotels, to operate a hotel and convention center anchoring the development, known as Branson Landing.

The board also was presented with an artist's rendering of the $300 million project.  It will feature six separate areas with different architecture and activities.

For instance, the Neighborhood District will include family restaurants, a grocery and newstand.  The Country District will be home to Bass Pro Shops.  And the Station District will have a lookout tower.

Branson leaders hope the development will attract new business and conventions.
