1st Converted Aloft Hotel

1033 Young St.DALLAS-Hamilton Properties Corp. and SAVA Holdings Ltd., armed with a $68.5-million plan, will bookend the Dallas Convention Center with two hotels, totaling 447 rooms. One will be a boutique independent and the other flagged as an aloft.
The development partners will begin work in September to convert the Santa Fe IV warehouse into a 195-room aloft, believed to be the flag’s first adaptive reuse in the nation.

Work on the 252-room hotel, being renamed to the View, will begin in November….
