Transformation underway

Demolition work is underway, as Herb Schwartz, of Schwartz Construction, carefully takes out the window of a room at the former America's Best Value motel, located on Fifth Street, across from Fort Massac State Park. James Little, of Metropolis, has announced he purchased the old motel a couple of months ago and has plans to renovate the motel into 15 two bedroom, two bath and six one bedroom, one bath apartments. Little says the time frame for completing the project depends on how many contractors he has working on the project but he hopes the renovation will be complete in six months. The apartments will be named Smallville Suites II.
