Construction of the upscale hotel on Duluth’s waterfront is on schedule and the exterior shell is up. Located on the site of the former Lafarge cement terminal, the hotel is slated to have 140 rooms and is owned by Pier B LLC. Sandy Hoff, president of F.I. Salter real estate service and a partner in Pier B LCC, said that the cranes were at work on Friday to add the fourth and final floor and the roof is scheduled to be added within the next two weeks.
