Milwaukee-based Paul Wiese Real Estate Corp. has dropped plans for a hotel in a development that Wiese is planning southeast of I-43 and Highway 60 in Grafton, according to village administrator Darrell Hofland. Wiese could not be reached for comment. He had proposed plans for an 88-bed Hampton Inn & Suites in the development. Now, in place of the hotel, Wiese plans to build an 18,607-square-foot multi-tenant retail building, Hofland said. In addition, Wiese’s plans for the 16-acre site still include a 6,000-square-foot restaurant building and a 3,450-square-foot convenience store and gas station. Village officials support Wiese’s new plans, despite the elimination of the hotel, Hofland said. "There are other opportunities to site hotels," Hofland said.
