An under-construction hotel that burned down in El Centro on Sunday night is expected to be rebuilt once the investigation by El Centro fire investigators ends.
A fire Sunday night destroyed the partially built 53-room extended-stay hotel called Casa Real Courtyard.
Jeff Silverman, president of Silverman & Co., said he spoke to the owner of the hotel, Herbert R. Meyer, and he said Meyer wants to start construction again as soon as the fire investigation is over, likely in about two weeks.
Silverman & Co. is contracted to do the electrical work for the hotel.
Silverman said the hotel was about 70 percent finished and was expected to be done in the next two months. His company had already wired the first two floors of the hotel and was waiting for the third to be done. No electricity was running to the structure, however, he said.
