The property also has 10,000 square-feet of ground floor retail space. This $55MM hotel meets LEED Certified standards to include a green living roofing system. Moreover, the hotel will be operated with green practices to include a smoke-free environment, single stream recycling, linen/terry re-use, non-chemical cleaning solutions and biodegradable products.
