The Conceptual drawing of Marriott Hotel in raleigh has been updated and thankfully so. I like it much better than what I have been seeing. It looks alot like the progress energy building, but it also blends in well with the new convention center which is great.

Heres some pics all are from the livable streets website...

i think the new one focuses on the retail on the bottom better. Its on fayettville and the rooms of the hotel are backed off from fayeteville making the retail more noticable... just a design thing i guess. Just my opinion though i think it looks more modern, the old one looks like typical mariott airport hotel i guess. Oh well atleast were getting a building. But yea it would be nice to see some color on this

I did a bit of research into Stormont's previous work. It seems that the new design may be very similar to one that they have done on a Renaissance Hotel in Portsmouth, VA.

Here's a pic of the Virginia hotel.

I found this rendering also, but there are no details on what/where this hotel it is. This is similar to the design we're seeing from Livable Streets. Compare this

Also the design will be like the progress energy building. this is from the convention center project website.

March 15, 2005

The developer of a planned headquarters hotel for the new downtown convention center presented a schematic design plan for the four-star facility at the Raleigh City Council meeting on March 15. Appearing at the meeting were representatives of Stormont-Noble Development of Atlanta and the development company

It looks from this model that the hotel is 90 degrees, but the site plan does have the long axis running north and south

I have updated the rendering - be sure to refresh your browser to get the latest pic at the top of this thread.
