RAD was contracted to complete 3D renovation drawings of this existing 12-story, 135,000 SF hotel and associated parking deck into a Cambria Suites, in partnership with C.A. Harrison Companies. The hotel had been abandoned for over a decade and was in desperate need of new life.
By 2022, with 146 guestrooms, it will be full service with a restaurant and bar, a catering kitchen and meeting space. The hotel plan is to demolish down to the existing structure and build back with 100% new exterior and interior materials. It is located in an “opportunity zone” and is considered to be a catalyst to re-energizing the historic city of Petersburg, VA.
Cambria Hotels is an upscale brand of the lodging company Choice Hotels and currently, they have approximately 115 properties open or under development worldwide.
