Developers will break ground this month on the 300 East Main St. project in Carrboro.
The development will include a 142-room Hampton Inn & Suites with 18,100 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. A 500-space parking deck will sit behind the hotel.
The developers, Main Street Properties, will begin the first construction phase — expected to last 13 months — with the demolition of existing buildings at 304 and 404 E. Main St. and two empty houses on Padgett Lane and Boyd Street.
The formal groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. March 28.
