Redevelopment Adds Visual Aesthetic to Site and Drive-by Tourism
The avid hotel project, a modern multi-national hospitality brand, included the redevelopment of an aged, 65-room motel. Simply renovating the property was not feasible for several reasons. First, the original motel’s existing box style is obsolete today. The motel also lacked the type and level of amenities that customers expect when staying at a hotel.
A Challenging Site Required Creative Design Strategies from the RGS Team
The avid hotel Lancaster site was a small, oddly shaped parcel along the State highway, making it difficult to maneuver. It was originally five lots that were consolidated into two. One of the team’s biggest challenges was varying land grades that required a careful layout, a retaining wall, and creative and efficient stormwater management.
The site had an existing significant stormwater pipe that had to be relocated. To meet the project’s requirements, RGS successfully designed the site to allow for seamless future expansion onto the adjoining property despite the steep slopes and compact lot. This resulted in maximum land utilization for the owner along a heavily traveled corridor in the County.
The RGS Design Allowed the Site Owner to Establish a New Hotel on the Property
The RGS Team’s design afforded the owner the ability to attract a top hotel brand by achieving the desired number of parking spots, guest rooms, and provided for the necessary vehicular circulation around the property to ensure a successful hotel operation at this location.
