The former Showcase Cinemas West property in Robinson is being redeveloped into a hotel and an auto dealer.

Robinson commissioners approved plans tonight for Marriott TownPlace Suites, a 106-room, extended-stay hotel, and Auction Direct USA, a used-vehicle superstore.

Construction of the $10 million to $14 million hotel will begin this fall, said Keith Shugerts of Essex Hotel Management in Rochester, N.Y.

Auction Direct has remodeled the former movie theater and is preparing to open Jan. 1 with about 600 vehicles, township planning director Rick Urbano said.

"It's going to be a super site," he said.
