A “boutique-type” Hampton Inn is set to be finished this time next year at the northwest corner of Easy Street and Carefree Drive.
Construction started in late spring, and the final pour on the foundation was laid last week, said Gary Neiss, Carefree’s town administrator. Vertical elements will start being constructed in the next month.
COVID-19 presented construction delays, which pushed back the completion date three to four months, Neiss said. During the shutdowns it was hard to find enough qualified trades to complete the work, he said.
