Located on the site of the former Pencoyd Iron Works, this 124 room hotel is designed to remind visitors of the area’s industrial heritage and role in the commercial expansion of the US throughout the 20th century. The existing industrial buildings on site are supported with massive steel box beams, several of which are preserved and highlighted on site. Steel sheets that once clad these buildings will be re-used on parts of the new building and re-purposed to maintain the memory of the site’s previous activities.
The new hotel will be branded as a Marriott Residence Inn, and the interiors are designed to comply with brand standards. The project includes a cafe designed to complement the amenities provided under the Marriott flag, including a pool, fitness room, conference facility, breakfast area, and a generous living area connected to the main lobby. The client’s offices will occupy the top floor of the hotel, and are accessed by separate entrance and elevator.
The site is connected to adjacent properties and communities with bike paths and a bridge across the Schuylkill River to the vibrant Manayunk shopping area.
The project is scheduled to begin construction in late 2017.
