Rockland — The planning board gave preliminary approval Feb. 5 to a plan to change nine motel rooms into three condominium units at the Navigator Motor Inn.

The project was submitted as a subdivision application by Liberty Hospitality of Maine, LLC. for the inn located at 520 Main St. A public hearing was also scheduled for Feb. 5, according to the meeting agenda.

Code Enforcement Officer John Root Jr. said the applicants will need to meet with city officials again to talk about drainage.

The plan will come back for final approval sometime after April 1, he said. The project is expected to cost $60,000.

This "expected" $60,000 project that results in three $150,000+/- condo units is quite unique in this economy.  The "View" of the ferry terminal must add sufficient equity thereby inducing prospective buyers to spend $150,000+/- for one of these lovely units.

Running some numbers . . .

Converting three old motel rooms into a spiffy-looking condo for just 20K!

Can I hire these guys to take care of my place? ? ?

$60,000 WILL CHANGE 9 ROOMS INTO THREE CONDOS THAT WILL SELL FOR AROUND $150,000 SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT DEAL. And, I suppose the Navigator will be open and a viable year round business again. That is good for Rockland. They might want to apply for another grant to enhance the facade on this buiding also. Good News for Rockland, eh?
