AC Hotel by Marriott

Little Rock, AR

Our $25 million project to revitalize the Capitol Main Historic District’s Hall-Davidson buildings into more than 172,000 square feet of premier guest accommodations and dining has proved to be a great draw to the city’s center. This project, part of the Marriott hotel group, was designed to blend European flair with the 1923 Hall building’s Beaux Arts style to create a chic destination in the heart of downtown Little Rock. The Davidson annex was added to the Hall in 1947 and both buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. The AC Hotel’s new lobby with tapas bar and lounge are popular with tourists and locals alike. The project won a 2020 Excellence in Construction Eagle Award from the Associated Builders & Contractors of Arkansas and is a finalist for a 2021 Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS) Development of the Year award.

Home2 Suites & Tru by Hilton

St. Louis, MO

St. Louis’ fabled Shell Building, the former headquarters of Shell Oil, was built in 1926 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its 13-story curved limestone façade, when viewed from ground level, boasts a seashell-like fan design reminiscent of the company’s logo. Our $43 million project to create the first dual-branded hotel property in St. Louis will add 80 conventional guestrooms along with 123 extended-stay rooms to the St. Louis hospitality landscape. The Shell Building’s location, near downtown’s popular Washington Avenue Historic District, will give travelers a central location to enjoy the highlights of this famed city, the Gateway to the West.

Le Meridien

Fort Worth, TX

Downtown Fort Worth’s Texas Hotel Annex, part of the historic 1921-built Hotel Texas property, is the inviting new home of the Le Meridien by Marriott. With European heritage and touches of mid-century modernist glamour, our $98 million project will create more than 200,000 square feet of stylish and sophisticated hotel space in a premier downtown location. Upon completion, the Le Meridien will include more than 200 fully renovated guest rooms, parking garage, rooftop bar, pool, and a full service lobby restaurant and gourmet Italian caffè service. The Le Meridien is ideally located to offer guests a vibrant mix of both the deep history of Fort Worth as well as the city’s modern amenities, and is just a few minutes’ walk from the Fort Worth Convention Center and Sundance Square, downtown’s lively 35-block destination for dining, shopping and entertainment.
