Demolition Of Former Cosmo Extended Stay Hotel Underway

Demolition has begun on the former Cosmo Extended Living hotel on M-139 in Sodus Township. The hotel hasn’t been in use since a fire that killed six people there on July 28, 2018. At last word, the plan is for the structure to be demolished and for  7-Eleven to build a Speedway gas station and convenience store there. 7-Eleven completed its purchase of the roughly 11 acre property earlier this year. The Berrien County Board of Commissioners later approved a Brownfield plan to clean up the site. Crews could be seen there Tuesday with some demolition work already done. The plan was for the Speedway to open in 2023.
