Several new businesses, potential jobs coming to Pikeville

Dozens of new businesses and hundreds of new jobs are coming to Pikeville. City commissioners announced all the new plans during a meeting on Monday night. Pikeville city commissioners and a developer say a new 200,000 square foot shopping center is on the way. The strip mall, to be built on Thompson Road, will have dozens of new stores.

Plans were also unveiled for a new Hilton Garden Hotel to be built next to the Hampton Inn. The eight story building will have 114 rooms, a restaurant, and outdoor event space on the rooftop.

Commissioners also approved $175,000 dollars in tax incentives for coal company Alpha Natural Resources to locate its headquarters in Pikeville, bringing 60 new jobs. It is not a done deal yet for Alpha Natural Resources to locate in Pikeville--the company still has to finalize a deal with the building's owner to move there.
