Developers Hope to Build Skyscraper in Branson

AUGUST 4, 2006 - Posted at 8:14 a.m. CDT

 

BRANSON, Mo. (AP) - Developers who want to build a 25-story

building in Branson have run into a roadblock.

H-C-W Development of Branson and Lebanon developer Evergreen

Investments are proposing a 300-foot building on a hill near the

current location of the Branson Inn. They say it would be the

tallest building in Missouri south of Kansas City and St. Louis.

The development would include hotel rooms, condominiums, a

restaurant and bar, office space, a spa, retail stores and

structured parking.

But the plans suffered a setback this week, when the Branson

Planning and Zoning Commission postponed a vote on the issue.

The developers want to amend an existing plan to allow a

building taller than ten stories, and for the density of people

likely to be generated by such a project.
