This is an updated version of a post originally published on November 12th 2015.

A major expansion and remodel of Old Town’s Grove Hotel is under construction. The project will include the renovation and seismic upgrade of the existing building fronting onto W Burnside, as well as the construction of a new 99′ tall tower to replace the existing theater addition. The addition will have the lobby and main entrance to the hotel at the ground level, and a rooftop restaurant at the 9th floor. New retail spaces would be created on the ground level of the original building, and a basement level “speakeasy” will be accessed from NW 5th Ave. No new vehicular parking is proposed. The architectural design is by Portland based Surround Architecture with New York based Studio Tack acting as design consultants.
