The Staybridge Suites Hotel is a mixed-use development located adjacent to the expanded and renovated Chattanooga Convention Center. The first phase comprises 124 extended stay suites with public functions including a lobby, great room, buffet, business center, fitness room and indoor pool. The ground floor includes space for an 8,000 S.F. restaurant and a 3,600 S.F. retail space. Phase 2 will add 36 rooms and 5,000 S.F. of retail space. The third phase may include more hotel, office or residential development combined with retail. The project encompasses an urban mixed use development that anchors highly visible corner to achieve the urban design objectives of the city while maintaining the requirements of the owner and franchise. Extensive meetings with 6 Continents, The Rivercity Company, The Planning and Design Studio and the developer were held. We used study models and drawings to achieve the consensus on the design. The project was completed in June of 2003.
