Developer picked to turn old MN asylum into luxury spa and hotel (after coin toss)
The Fergus Falls City Council has agreed on a $41 million plan to convert the city's former state mental hospital into a luxury spa and hotel, choosing a development firm from Georgia over a Twin Cities-based bid.
The Fergus Falls Journal reports on the results of a vote, which went in favor of Norcross, Ga.-based Historic Properties Inc. and its owner Ray Willey. Willey's proposal had been competing with a redevelopment plan by Terrence Scholz and Colonnade Design Group of Burnsville.(The two parties flipped a coin to see who would present first.)
Colonnade and Historic Properties had initially planned to co-develop the hospital site, called the Kirkbride, which was one of a number of elaborately designed mental institutions built in the late 1800s, but the partnership fell apart. Willey's now teaming with hotelier Charles Noh.
The plan for the former hospital includes 120 hotel rooms, a restaurant and 60 apartments
Minnesota Public Radio also has a report on the myriad of challenges that faced Fergus Falls when trying to reposition the structure, which has been vacant since 2009 and has more square footage than the city's entire downtown strip.

It would do for the slewer IF one room was kept as a mental ward room with bars etc.
