Thomas Saturley, president of Tranzon and Thursday's auctioneer, began the bids at $500,000 and reduced them to $100,000 after George Schott, owner of the Auburn Mall, offered to open with that amount.
Schott later raised his bid to $150,000, but declined to raise it after Ross increased the bank's bid to $175,000. "One, it's off the beaten path," Schott said, explaining why he did not pursue his bid. "Two, you've got a derelict mill right next to it." Schott also said the marina was also close to the mill's wastewater treatment facility and did not have an ideal waterfront.
Ocean Properties - owner of the Samoset in Rockport and Wentworth-by-the-Sea in Portsmouth - is negotiating with local developer George Schott to build a hotel at the intersection of Turner Street and Mount Auburn Avenue."We met with George on a number of occasions, have looked at sites and have a strong interest in seeing what we can do to bring a high-quality hotel to Auburn," said Bob Baldacci, vice president of development for Ocean Properties and brother to the governor.Baldacci said his company was approached by a representative of Schott's a few months ago.Schott said he's had a hotel in mind for the area for quite a while."Lewiston-Auburn needs another hotel," he said."This is an ideal location because it's where the shopping and restaurants are."The site's location near the Center Street flyover gives it easy access to Bates College and beyond, he added.He expects the hotel will offer 120 rooms or so.The hotel could be built on one of three corners at the Mount Auburn/Turner Street intersection owned by Schott.The owner of the Auburn Mall and other nearby retail complexes, Schott said he thinks Ocean Properties will likely pick the spot with the easiest access for traffic."I thought this was a great location for (a hotel), so I went to the big boys," he said of Ocean Properties.

Auburn developer George Schott, who would co-own the 25,580-square-foot hotel with Florida-based Ocean Properties, said it would target customers staying for more than a week at a time, which makes it different from most other hotels in the area.
Schott owns a similar extended-stay hotel in Auburn that he says is doing well and has started work on another in Bath he anticipates will open next summer. Schott, who owns the Auburn Mall and other commercial properties in Maine and hundreds of units of former base housing around the former Brunswick Naval Air Station, said his company researched the demand and determined "the need and numbers are there." "I feel, and Ocean (Properties) feels (the market demand is there) - you really don't have a product like this here," Schott said. "It has been very good for us (elsewhere). Schott, who attended Wednesday's board meeting, said in a previous interview that if the project is approved, construction would start as soon as possible in the spring, and the hotel would open a year later. He said it will employ around 16 people. Schott said all the units would have kitchenettes and other amenities meant to make longer-term guests feel more at home.
