CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming developer plans to build a 70,000-square-foot hotel and convention center in the state's capital.

The $55 million project in south Cheyenne is expected to open in the summer of 2021.

The developers behind the project, 307 Land Development, say the facility will include a 150-bed hotel, a restaurant, convention space and a 36-lane bowling alley.

They plan to host concerts, basketball tournaments, trade shows and weddings in the complex's event space.

Visit Cheyenne CEO Darren Rudloff says a recent survey suggests that the area needs additional hotel and events space.
