California-based developers are working on another 200 downtown hotel rooms.
T2 Hospitality has turned in plans for an 11-story, 211-room hotel – referred to as the Denver Lifestyle Hotel — at the corner of 16th and Market streets. The project will take shape on a 0.36-acre lot T2 bought last year for $10 million.
BusinessDen first reported the project in November.
Plans show two floors of lobby space and nine stories of guest rooms. The ground level includes 7,250 square feet of restaurant space facing the 16th Street Mall. The second story has about 3,750 square feet of meeting space, 2,000 square feet of office space and the hotel’s main lobby.
Drawings also show one level of underground parking. California-based DLR Group is the architect on drawings submitted to Denver’s Lower Downtown Design Review Board.
T2 Hospitality, based in Newport Beach, California, bought the property, now a surface parking lot, from Integrated Properties last fall. It’s one of the last remaining developable sites along the 16th Street Mall and sits just across the street from Market Street Station, a former bus station now slated for a major mixed-use revamp.
The T2 hotel is at least one LoDo hotel in the planning stages. Stonebridge Cos. is designing another 200-plus room hotel for a parking lot at 17th and Blake streets.
