The Ware Hotel will add 35 renovated units to serve the housing needs of families in downtown Waycross.   The renovation of the historic 1928 constructed buildings is part of the city's program to promote growth in the main downtown area.  Waycross is the largest city in Ware County, located in southeastern rural Georgia.  The property will have 18 two-bedroom units and 17 one-bedroom units.  As part of its participation in the ARRA program, the Ware Hotel will include a number of environmentally sustainable features, including reduced parking to minimize storm water runoff, improved HVAC and heating units and Energy Star appliances.  Additionally, the renovation will bring back one of the town’s main focal points and will offer a number of amenities to its residents, including a furnished library, fitness center and computer center.
