Kimpton Hotel in the West End

Recommended Posts

Nice to know a little bit more about this hotel! Kimpton will be a nice addition to the downtown landscape. I hope they can land that brewery they envision(ed) for the retail space.

What is the status of the Rhett Street streetscape project? It would be nice to do along with all these developments.  I'd also like to see some more retail sprinkled in which appears to be included with this hotel and The McClaren.

Any movement in this project considering construction was supposed to start immediately?

Miscommunication. Hotel will open in early 2022 not early 2021.

Ah okay, so no timeline for construction to begin?

Nope. I imagine it will start construction by the end of the year though.

  • Construction is expected to start at the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
  • The anticipated opening date is March 2022 according to Ron Vlasic, CEO of Hostmark Hospitality Group.
  • The hotel will bring more than 200 jobs to the area.
  • The Kimpton will have 170 rooms and four restaurants.
  • The projected cost will be around $50 million according to Vlasic.

Welp..they’ve got a month or so to start construction according to their timeline. I highly doubt this one moves forward at all due to Covid-19 and an already over supply of hotel rooms downtown.

Agree, not happening.

I assume this is dead. Definitely appears to be.

Hearing that a new design is in the works, including a potential additional use. 

I'm rather intrigued by this. I assume it must be residential (?). I hope it is within the same language as the previous design, as I thought that was rather fitting for the West End.

It is residential condos. Of course, until it is submitted for approval, don't bet the farm on it.

Great -- the condo market downtown right now seems quite hot. Unless the market gets flooded, it seems to bode well for the conference center residential tower to actually happen.

Not much different going off the new renderings I have received. Just taller with pretty much all glass on the top two floors. The rooftop amenities appear to still be there. Eight floors in the front along Markley and nine in the back along Rhett. The brick and windows on the lower floors is still there and the same for the most part. Glass balconies on the corner of Main and Markley have been added.
