101-Room Hilton Garden Inn to Open at Former Bank Building in Flint, Michigan
FLINT, MICH. — A new 101-room Hilton Garden Inn is set to open in downtown Flint in 2020. The building was formerly known as the Genesee County Savings Bank Building. The historic 11-story building was Flint’s second skyscraper when it opened in 1920. (The height of a skyscraper in those days was typically much lower than today.) Plans for the Hilton Garden Inn include a full-service restaurant, meeting and banquet center and rooftop deck. Crescent Hotels and Resorts will manage the hotel. Flint-based firms DW Lurvey Co. and Sorenson Gross are jointly managing construction of the project. Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group is serving as architect, interior designer and historic consultant. Developer Uptown Reinvestment Corp., Michigan Economic Development Corp., Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Skypoint Ventures and Local Initiatives Support Corp. are providing project financing, along with Huntington Bank and Old National Bank.
