Any major expansion plan comes with a myriad of project considerations. For this landmark Lancaster hotel with notable architecture and historic elements, Marriott planned a 68,100-SF addition to accommodate growth in the downtown area. This project had been in the works for several years and required constructing the new hotel space where three buildings stood.
With previous urban development experience in the City of Lancaster, RETTEW navigated the land development approval process by applying our thorough understanding of the City of Lancaster procedures and ordinances. We also analyzed and incorporated various sustainable options, such as a green roof, to accommodate stormwater regulations in an innovative and attractive manner. With 12 additional floors, 110 rooms of hotel space, and an expanded restaurant, this stately building on Penn Square offers high-quality lodging central to downtown Lancaster’s various venues and activities.
