PUBLIC SPACE RENOVATIONS

Exterior improvements include new metal fin features, back-lit glass features, all new hardscape/landscape, lighting, and repainting. Interior improvements included a lobby addition, bar/lounge remodel, and new coffee shop. With its location at the city’s urban core, safety and security of the hotel and surrounding areas during construction was critical.
