LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) -- A Richmond developer is looking to build a new hotel in the place of an old restaurant in Lynchburg.

Sandpiper Hospitality is proposing to build a 122-room Extended Stay hotel on Border St. next to the Kirkley Hotel.

The space is where Billy Joe's restaurant used to be.

The developer will go before the city's planning commission next month and City Council will hear the proposal in January.
