New renderings showcase restored art deco lobby
INDIANAPOLIS – The highly anticipated Bottleworks District is pleased to announce it has released a new suite of renderings for its Bottleworks Hotel as construction continues on the $300 million urban mixed-use development in downtown Indianapolis. The hotel, along with The Garage Food Hall, movie theater, and retail and office space, is scheduled to open by the end of the year.
Occupying the top two floors of the historic bottling works administration building, Bottleworks Hotel will delight guests with a glamorous aesthetic that weaves historic architectural features with modern hotel amenities, including meeting space, room service, fitness center, and valet parking, along with a restaurant and lounge.
Updated Bottleworks Hotel renderings showcase the hotel’s reimagined lobby with terrazzo floors, plaster detailing, colorful ceramic tile and brass art deco patterned doors, impeccably restored to their historic state. Entry to the 140-key boutique hotel will be located at the southwest corner of the historical building, where the iconic frozen fountain Coca-Cola sign once topped the roof. Originally the building’s “Filler Machine Room,” a rolling conveyor belt leading to the bottling rooms has now been replaced by the hotel’s front desk area.
“Bottleworks Phase One development continues to make great progress, including construction on the former Coca-Cola building, which will bring an incredible new boutique hotel to the heart of downtown Indy,” said Jeff Whiteman, Chief Operating Officer at Geronimo Hospitality Group, which will own and operate both the hotel and food hall at Bottleworks. “We’re moving forward full-steam ahead on this exciting project and look forward to debuting the hotel along with The Garage Food Hall later this year.”
Steps from Bottleworks Hotel, The Garage Food Hall will be home to more than 25 independently owned local and regional vendors, bringing together culinary talent and an eclectic mix of specialty retail inside a 38,000 square foot communal space. The Food Hall is scheduled to open in early December.
Phase I of Bottleworks District also includes development of venture studio High Alpha, and Living Room Theater, an eight-theater cinema offering a sophisticated and comfortable venue to showcase local and internationally acclaimed films.
