Downtown Calgary has been on quite the run when it comes to new hotel development, with three new hotels opening in the last two years, and a fourth hotel currently under construction. The streak doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon as yet another hotel has been proposed for downtown Calgary.
Calgary based Triple One Properties recently unveiled plans for a new high-rise hotel in the heart of Calgary's core. The proposal calls for a 17 storey tower with 151 hotel units. Dubbed 'Hampton Inn by Hilton', the project is slated for 614 - 6th Ave SW, directly north of Calgary's Court House complex.
Plans show a slender high-rise structure using a combination of light gray, dark gray, and gold colored aluminum paneling, with vision glass for the windows. The hotel will feature two level of retail facing onto 6th Avenue, totaling 2,327 square feet, and the underground parking will utilize a combination of valet parking with an automated car lift stacking system.
The proposal is still in the early stages of development, with the permit needing full approval, however the project is off to a good start with the city's administration recommending the city's Planning Commission approve the development at their next meeting.
With plenty yet to come on this project, SkyriseCalgary will continue to follow its progress.
