BEDFORD — A five-story, extended stay hotel is being eyed for the former Magdalen College property along South River Road.
Conceptual plans have been presented to the Planning Board for the proposed 120-room hotel, potentially a future Home2 Suites by Hilton, according to the preliminary plans. Nam and An Kyung own the property at 270 South River Road, and the applicant for the project is Shane Patel — the same developer who constructed the Hampton Inn and Suites off Hawthorne Drive.
Chris Bandazian, town councilor, expressed concerns about the security of the building and a potential increase in police or fire activity. He noted recent criminal problems at a different extended stay hotel located in Merrimack.
