Demolition of the former Drawbridge Inn in Fort Mitchell begins Tuesday morning. 

A release says the sites are being cleared for future development.  Bellevue Developer Brandicorp,  is planning a mix of residential, retail and medical office use for the 20 plus acre site.

The Christ Hospital Health Network is planning a medical office building on part of the site. 

The Drawbridge Inn closed in December 2012 after operating for 42 years. 

The Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center will close Sunday.  A release says the closing of the hotel will allow the new ownership time to clearly focus on future opportunities for the site and weigh the feasibility of remaining in the hospitality industry. 

The closure will not affect McHale’s Events and Catering’s events scheduled in the hotel convention space and the Pizza Pub will remain open.
