CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- A development group out of Cedar Falls is proposing expanding its hotel and adding a convention center.

Chris Bro Hospitality wants to build a 92 room extension next to its Hilton Garden Inn off Nordic Drive. It also wants to build a 12,000 square foot convention center. It will include meeting and banquet space.

This proposed convention center is just a mile away from another proposed center.

Open Door Hospitality wants to build a center and hotel in a vacant lot off Hudson Road near Highway 20.

The center could hold up to 1,000 people. The hotel would have about 140 rooms. Open Door Hospitality tells us it hopes to bring formal plans to the city council soon.
