New hotel planned near South 35th Street, 23rd Avenue
The city council on Monday evening voted 5-0 to approve a recommendation by the Community Development Department for a four-story, 63-unit My Place Hotel on currently vacant ground along South 35th Street and 23rd Avenue.
The hotel would be built on 1.8 acres on the north side of 23rd Avenue where it turns into South 35th Street, just to the southwest of the Star Cinema.
Besides the lodging units, the hotel would have an outdoor patio near the main building entrance and an indoor swimming pool. Hotel access would come from a private driveway and two interconnections with the abutting Star Cinema site

It screams "Kidz Fun Zone Pizza Party Place", so like Chuck E Cheese from the 1990s

Isn't it just re-purposing space that was already there and unused?
No, they built the structure on the former parking lot next to the MAC. Granted it is just a concrete floor with steel beams and a roof, so that is probably why it went up so quickly.
Iowa West ends deal with fieldhouse company
The Iowa West Foundation board of directors voted unanimously to end an agreement with the FieldhouseUSA, a company based in Frisco, Texas, that had been its partner in developing the 105,000-square-foot indoor athletics facility in Council Bluffs.
Tulipana said the only things that will change for the facility will be its name – now, the Iowa West Foundation Fieldhouse – and the company managing its operations.
The building is still set to open in mid-January, he said, and the change won’t require Iowa West to spend any additional money to run the fieldhouse.
Tulipana said the foundation has two goals for the project: ensuring the facility serves as an economic driver by bringing large-scale youth sports tournaments to Council Bluffs and guaranteeing public access to the space
Interesting... Also from the Article:
John Schreier, Nonpareil wrote:Iowa West President and CEO Pete Tulipana said the separation came about because the two sides were unable to come to an agreement on the amount of time and access the general public would have to the fieldhouse.

Seems like the whole reason they do what they do...
