The construction boom around Asheville shows no sign of slowing, and a construction site not far from Asheville Mall has sparked the curiosity of at least one viewer.

"What is being built on Tunnel Road in east Asheville next to the Best Western?" Greg Philips wrote Ask 13 in an email.

Although there is a brick wall going up at the back of the property at 509 Tunnel Road and lots of construction material on site, there's nothing that gives away exactly what is being built.

A visit to the Best Western next door turned out to be more helpful. Owner H.P. Patel plans to open a hotel called Glo.

Glo is a suburban boutique hotel and will be the first of it's kind in North Carolina. It will have 72 rooms with a modern, contemporary style and unique architecture.

The hotel is scheduled to open in summer 018.
