SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County is once again accepting applications from developers to build a large hotel near downtown Salt Lake City's convention center.
The county announced Friday that it had re-issued a request for proposals after negotiations with Omni Hotels & Resorts fell through in August.
Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams said Omni officials were asking for $15 million in upfront cash in addition an incentive package of about $100 million. He said that would be bad for taxpayers.
McAdams said in a statement Friday that the new request includes the offer of government-owned land on the north and south ends of the convention center property that could be available to build a hotel connected to venue.
Proposals for the 800 to 1,000 room hotel will be accepted until Dec. 4.
