Crowne Plaza hotel owners plan 28-story second tower downtown
The owners of the Crowne Plaza Downtown Detroit Riverfront hotel downtown are planning a 28-story second tower that would rise about 338 feet, taller than the existing 25-story building.
The owner, a Mexican and European investor group called Operadora de Servicio Para Hoteles de Lujo, submitted documents to a Detroit City Council committee saying that the second tower for the hotel formerly known as the Hotel Pontchartrain would have 448,300 square feet with typical floors of about 15,900 square feet.
Construction would start this fall or winter and be complete in 2021, a document provided to the Detroit City Council's Planning and Economic Development standing committee says. When complete, there would be about 150 permanent workers in the tower.
