Historical renovation awaits ‘Pink Palace’

BRADENTON -- The Widewaters Group has accepted Bradenton’s offer of more than $1 million in incentives and an estimated $1.5 million in tax rebates to move forward with renovation of the “Pink Palace,” one of the city’s standout historic properties. “Although we were not able to secure all of the incentives that we were looking for, in the end we are agreeing to a package that works for all parties,” wrote Brian Long, director of development for Widewaters, which will convert the circa-1926 building into a Hampton Inns Suite.
