The developer of the proposed Downtown Hotel at Carroll Creek presented an updated design for the project at a May 18 press conference with Mayor Randy McClement and Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner.
Plamondon Hospitality Partners unveiled the new design concept, which incorporates site conditions, historic sensitivity, and community input. Key improvements to the project include financial, functional and design related changes:
• No public dollars will be used in the construction, operation, or maintenance of the hotel or the conference center meeting space. • Public dollars will only be used for land acquisition, grading and site preparation, utilities, on-site public parking, and related off-site roadway improvements. • The project is designed to be harmonious with and complement the historic district.• Improved vehicle flow to and through the project site by adding access points on East Patrick Street with a connection from South Carroll Street.• Increased on-site public parking to approximately 170 spaces.
“I am thrilled with where we are today with this project that I believe will help be a catalyst for the growth of the east side of our City. I am even more proud to be able to stand here and tell you that no public dollars will go into the construction or operation of the hotel or conference center,” said Mayor Randy McClement.
County Executive Jan Gardner also spoke at the unveiling. “The Downtown Hotel at Carroll Creek is going to take us to the next level,” said Gardner. “It will benefit large local businesses that want to hold conferences, and small businesses that will see increased sales from the people who stay at the hotel and shop at our unique stores and boutiques or enjoy one of our great restaurants.”
Updates about the project will be posted on the hotel website: downtownhotelatcarrollcreek.com.
