Hampton Inn at Town Center

18 posts in this topic

 There's a proposal to build a Hampton Inn & Suites at Columbus & Market where the Arby's office is currently. No specifics yet but something to keep an eye out for.

Says town center block 2. Isn't that where the office tower was supposed to go? If so, this doesn't seem like a very positive development.

Actually, according to this map block 2 is next to the office tower block, in the future development section.

The address and description don't match. Wherever it is I just hope it's urban and compliments the design of TC proper.

It's where the little one story office is next to the lake across from the Dicks garage and the current construction.

I know that area. That's a very small parcel of land. I can't imagine a hotel sitting on such a small footprint. It would definitely have to build up to have any size.  They would almost certainly have to utilize the the parking garages around it.  Google maps 4569 Columbus Street to have a look.

The lot is a little larger than I remembered. I snapped a pic below.

That still looks pretty tiny for an entire hotel to fit on. I would imagine that this would have to be a Hampton Inn focused on building up (maybe 7 or 8 stories or so).

Doing a quick google maps measurement, the lot is roughly about 150x100ft, which is plenty of room to build a hotel on. In Portland, our blocks are 200x200ft, and a number of our buildings are only 100x100ft, including a new Hampton Inn type hotel that just opened. It will probably be about 6 to 8 stories high, but shouldn't have any problem fitting on that site. My guess is that they would utilize the parking garage across the street rather than build a garage for themselves on this block.

I wasn't able to find the exact dimensions but the lot is just under 9500 sq ft so much smaller than 100x150. 

 

Although there's a smaller lot between it and Market so hopefully it will be included in the project.

I just did a quick google maps measuring, so I don't know the actual lines from the site, though 9500sf ft is definitely much smaller than the amount of land that is there.

Hampton Inn at Town Center will be 13 stories. IMG_5762.thumb.PNG.8c8b7ffdbf74908add80fa87c2fb36bc.PNG

That is honestly more than I was expecting. Thought they were going to low-ball it. That's a decent size for a Hampton Inn. They're usually not that tall to begin with. Now if we can only get some decent architecture out of this.

That's my biggest fear. I don't want some bland cookie cutter oceanfront hotel. They need to step it up a notch for Town Center.

Honestly, I'd like to see the oceanfront get away from cookie cutter too. As for Town Center, I'd love to see an all-glass design, but I dunno how innovative they'll get for a Hampton Inn...

Expect it to be bland, it probably won't be ugly, but you will probably be like "yep, that is a Hampton Inn Hotel..."

9500 sq ft. That's a pretty small footprint, so the 13 stories make sense. Maybe a nice skinny one with glass. Or an L-shaped one.  

What I'm envisioning, however, is miles of tannish EIFS cladding, some dark windows and the big bright red sign on top.

Hoping for better, preparing for the worst.
