The Hilton turned Radisson turned Cosmopolitan will soon have a new look and a new name.

The 14-story hotel in downtown Fayetteville is set for a complete facelift once its new owners close the deal on the purchase.

A building permit recently issued to Thrash Development for a $7.1 million renovation and repair suggested that the deal would be finalized sooner rather than later.

During the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce’s annual awards banquet Monday evening, chamber president Steve Clark said he believed the project could begin as early as next week.

Expect a temporary closure followed by a reopening in fall 2012 with a possible four-star rating and a new name.
