The Redevelopment of the Hotel Grim is now closer to reality than ever before. The City of Texarkana, Texas has put together a working team regarding the Grim Redevelopment Project.

Members include city staff, and members of the community who have a vested interest in seeing this project successfully completed. Major strides have been made in the project too. Three things were discussed at today's meeting of the group...

  • Dr. Beverly Rowe has completed the paperwork for the historic designation and it has been sent in to the state for approval. Once it is approved at a state level, it will be submitted for national historic designation.
  • The first stage to complete the Brownfields requirements has been finished and the city is moving forward on the second stage.
  • The working team will detail a project timeline and present to the community to keep everyone updated and aware of progress on the project.

This is very exciting news to the many that are working towards the revitalization of downtown Texarkana. The redevelopment of the Hotel Grim into Lofts and shops will be done by Sari and Company.
