PHILADELPHIA In another major project for the Logan Square neighborhood, Mayor Nutter is expected to announce Tuesday that Kimpton Hotels will open a luxury hotel in the Family Court building at 1801 Vine St., according to people familiar with the project.
Kimpton is working on the project with Peebles Corp. of New York City and local developers P&A Associates.
The Kimpton group was one of three that submitted proposals for converting the 73-year-old building into a hotel.
R. Donahue Peebles, founder of Peebles Corp., could not be reached for comment Monday.
In an earlier interview, he said the project would cost about $85 million. It would include 199 rooms, a 3,500-square-foot ballroom, meeting and board rooms, a spa and fitness center, and a restaurant and bar.
