Albany - It's an eye sore in Albany, but now the Heritage House hotel may live again. For almost a decade, the old hotel on Oglethorpe Boulevard has been vacant. Wednesday, the Economic Development Commission announced a prospective investor is interested in renovating the hotel.

"It is preliminary and early. We've only had one meeting with them. But, I think in the next two or three months we'll have a better feel for what that process will be," said Mark Davis, EDC.

The Heritage House has the largest convention space of any hotel in town right now, and it has more rooms than even the new hotel and conference center being built downtown.
