Ambridge Council approved "1111 New Economy Drive" as the official address for the hotel last week and sent written notice to Beaver County.
The Rev. Dr. Laurie Thompson, who is working on the hotel project, said a "de facto" groundbreaking will take place in October. Another ceremonial groundbreaking is planned for November, when one of two builders from the Nebraska-based Cobblestone Hotels is coming to speak to the ministerium in detail about the development.
Thompson, dean of Seminary Advancement, said they are now going through the permitting process, which officials have expected to take several months.
