According to both John Salvatore, director of development for Starwood and Steve Aiello, the President of COR Development, that the hotel would be developed with no public funds, but will use commercial loans and private equity. COR Development will end up owning the hotel as a franchisee–but hire a Starwood-approved management company. No word on the number of proposed jobs.
