SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A fixture of the downtown Spartanburg skyline for more than year has come down.

OTO Development said the removal of the 208-foot tall, 275-tone crane is bittersweet, but marks the approach of the new AC Hotel on Main Street.

The 10-story hotel, a brand within the Marriott collection which is owned by the Johnson family, will provide accommodations for 114 guests when it opens in the fall. A spokesperson for OTO Development, serving as the developer and operator, said it is slated to feature a lounge, meeting space, 24-hour onsite fitness, an outdoor pool, rooftop restaurant and a collection of mid-century art.

The crane, which was dismantled on Tuesday. was on site for the project and symbolized "the growth and revitalization of our corporate headquarters' hometown," said OTO Development director Bruce Collins.
