Downtown, 'no-frills' hotel no longer in the works?

Downtowners eager to see the parking lot pictured above morph into something more exciting might be disappointed. Commercial real-estate guru Tony Wilbert reports that a Japanese company's plans to build a 40-story, "no-frills" hotel at Luckie and Forsyth streets might have changed. Wilbert noticed earlier this week that the property now features a "for sale" sign.

(For an idea of how the hotel might have looked, go here. Scroll to the end of the "hospitality" section in the project architect's online portfolio to view renderings, which depict a building that's nearly the same height as the Equitable Building. For a 2009 design critique by the sorely-missed Terminal Station, go here.)
