CATHEDRAL CITY - Next to the Cimarron Golf Resort on 30th Avenue sits an unfinished project. It was supposed to be luxury hotel with almost 200 suites, part of the Staybridge Suites, but only the concrete base was completed.
"There's a huge area that's been corded off and yet to be completed and it's just been sitting and sitting and we were promised that it would be finished at least," expressed Ken Muraco, who lives a few houses from the project.
He said that the site has become an eyesore in the neighborhood. A spokesperson from the City of Cathedral City said construction began in 2010 and shortly after, construction halted due to the downturn of the economy. She added that the project's developer is planning on resuming the project, but it's unclear on the time frame.
"They stated that it was going to be a four-five story hotel; it was going to be beautiful. There wasn't going to be a dining room or anything, it was low-key like an over-night type thing where workers could come and stay or people could just come an play golf," explained Muraco.
