Former office building gets second life as boutique hotel
KennMar acquired an office building and adjacent parking lot in the heart of Downtown Indianapolis to develop a new hotel. This five-story, 60,000-square-foot building was originally home to State Life Insurance Co., when it was built in 1969.
KennMar partnered with national and international hospitality companies and an Indianapolis architecture firm to plan an elegant 90-room boutique hotel, with a rooftop bar, private dining room, and state-of-the-art business-use spaces.
Construction on this project began in late 2019. Challenges included retrofitting the existing building from office to hotel use and planning the project in such a way that accommodates further growth on the adjacent parking lot. The hotel is set to open in 2021.
