Tucson’s tallest downtown building may soon be accepting overnight guests.
Developers plan to convert eight floors of the 23-story tower at 1 S. Church Ave. into a hotel. The top floors would remain offices.
Scottsdale-based Opwest Partners plans to pour more than $38 million into the project and put in about 150 hotel rooms; 1,500 square feet of meeting space; a 4,000-square-foot restaurant and bar; and outdoor patios and a marketplace.
“The adaptive reuse of the existing asset to a vertical mixed-use property consisting of a boutique lifestyle hotel and a renovated office asset will create an offering that does not currently exist in the market,” developers say.
