Here is what's planned. 

"Development is underway to transform the former hotel into apartments with retail. 375 units are planned, with 360 designated as studio apartments." 

"The company recently stated to the C.B.I.D. Development Committee that they had been approached by the University of Tennessee about the possibility of leasing a block of the units or the entire building in order to ease their student housing crunch. Ms. Jimenez said, “We have received the master lease agreement from the University of Tennessee. Our legal is currently reviewing the terms and conditions. We are moving forward and we are in the middle of the mutual negotiation."

I'm glad to see they're planning to give the old girl a makeover. I stayed there a couple of times over 20  years ago. It looked dated even then, like an indoor "motel".  It's built like a WW2 bunker, and it's iconic on the K'town skyline.
