Editor's Picks: Old Hotel Transformed into Acorn Corner

Kent Patch gives you the editor's picks for top 10 stories of 2012.

Editor's note: this year Kent residents bore witness to something many people thought impossible — the restoration of the old Kent hotel.

The sale of the building to Acorn Alley developer Ron Burbick was a big story in 2011, and in 2012 renovations started.

The restored building is expected to open in mid March with anchor tenant Buffalo Wild Wings on the first floor.

For 2012, this story is one of my picks for top 10 stories of the year.
