NEW ORLEANS—HRI Properties, based here, will officially mark the launch of the LTV Building’s $80-million conversion into downtown Dallas’s first mixed-use hotel and residential complex.
According to the company, the complex—which was originally built in the mid-1960s—will include a 171-room Hilton Garden Inn Hotel as well as 186 luxury apartments. When the structure was first created, its facade created the world’s largest electronic signboard. Thirty windows on each of the upper 25 floors were individually controlled and could be configured to shapes, letters and messages.
With construction expected to be completed by third quarter 2015, the hotel will also utilize 148 valet parking spaces in the basement of the LTV Building. Other hotel amenities will include a first-floor lobby with a restaurant/bar with outdoor seating, 2,000 sq. ft. of meeting space on the fifth floor and an outdoor pool deck and a fitness center. Guestrooms will include all Hilton Garden Inn brand standard features including 42-in. flat-panel TVs and in-room refrigerator. The apartment units will be located on floors 15 through 32 and feature condominium-level finishes, washer and dryer appliances and views of the Dallas skyline.
