Empire Building Conversion


The historic and iconic Empire Building will be transformed into the centerpiece of a new boutique hotel project.  Combined with the adaptive reuse of an existing two story commercial building located at 19 Old Courthouse Square, and creation of a new Courtyard linking the two buidlings, the Empire Building will house the hotel's lobby, wine bar, meeting space, and thirty- nine elegant guest rooms will occupy the upper three floor.

The lower floor of 19 Old Courthouse Square will house two restaurants and a coffee lounge.   The second floor will transformed into 21 additional luxurious hotel guest rooms.  A new third level will be added to the structure with two guest suites, a bar and cafe, rooftop deck overlooking Courthouse Square, and space for private functions and events.

The Empire Building  and 19 Old Courthouse Square will be linked by a new covered passageway running along the western end of the new courtyard.   The first components of the project are slated to open in late 2017 with the full project operating in early 2018.
