Hotel plans for Fort Trumbull hit potential snag in New London

Development of an aquaponics farm is off the table at Fort Trumbull but the Renaissance City Development Association, the city’s development arm, is expected to start the new year with continued negotiations for a hotel on the Fort Trumbull peninsula. The hotel plans face an obstacle, however, with the nine-month negotiating period with J-Patel Hotel group for a $15 million hotel set to expire on Jan. 5. The RCDA has not been able to come up with a viable place to relocate the commercial fishing operation located on the waterfront pier that is a critical part of the 90- to 120-room hotel proposal. The RCDA does have the ability to extend talks for at least 30 days.
