$73M Hotel Restoration Project Underway in Sioux City, Iowa
SIOUX CITY, IOWA — The Warrior Hotel and neighboring Davidson Building in downtown Sioux City will undergo a $73 million restoration. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Tuesday, Feb. 5. The 10-story hotel and six-story building are slated to open in the fall of 2020 as The Warrior Hotel and Davidson Apartments. Marriott will operate the hotel as an Autograph Collection hotel. Both the Davidson and The Warrior properties, built in 1913 and 1930, respectively, have been vacant for the past 40 years. They are listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
Restoration of St. Louis is leading the renovation. BSI Contractors Inc., FEH Architects and Checkmate Design are also project partners. Funding for the project was supported by nearly $18 million in assistance approved by the Iowa Department of Economic Development, including $16.5 million in historic tax credits and $5 million in the form of loans and grants from the city. When completed, The Warrior will feature 148 guest rooms. The Davidson Apartments will house an additional 56 hotel rooms on the second through fourth floors, 20 apartment units, two lofts and street-level commercial space.
