GAJE Downtown Development, LP / R. James Marcelli, Blair County
This project included the redevelopment of a downtown property to construct a 4-story, 83 room hotel and associated parking with access from Chestnut Avenue and Green Avenue alley, with Green Avenue alley being widened to 20’. Additional parking is provided on the south side of the ally.
Project Uniqueness/Challenges: Two of the bordering streets are one-way, therefore providing guest vehicular access to the front of the building for check-in/check-out was a challenge. Keller staff worked with the project’s Architect to come up with an L-shaped hotel layout that met the hotel interior needs as well as provided the site needs to allow space for on-site vehicle circulation to the front of the hotel.
