Americus--The owner of the Windsor Hotel in Americus hopes to get the city's help to create permanent housing in the historic landmark.

The hotel is about 115-years-old. Owner Sharad Patel says the upper part is falling apart rapidly.

He wants to remodel the fifth floor and part of the fourth floor and turn both into upscale apartments or condominiums.

 "This is in the very early preliminary stage. We're testing waters. We've been with the Windsor for eight years. It's been going really good. It's time for us to go to the next level and finish the remaining restoration part from 1991," he says.

Patel is still negotiating with the city for a potential $250,000 revolving loan. He says, so far, the city has been cooperative.
