FLINT, Mich., Sept. 25, 2019 — A new Hilton Garden Inn is set to open in downtown Flint in 2020, with the first look inside one of the guest rooms revealing the incredible transformation underway inside the former Genesee County Savings Bank Building at 110 W. Kearsley St.
Based on an original design by Tracy & Swartout, a then-prominent New York architectural firm, the historic 11-story building was Flint’s second skyscraper when it opened in 1920. The current transformation of the nearly 100-year-old building will result in a 101-room Hilton Garden Inn, complete with a full-service restaurant, a meeting and banquet center, and rooftop deck.
The hotel will be managed by Crescent Hotels and Resorts. Flint-based firms DW Lurvey Co. and Sorenson Gross are jointly managing construction of the project. Detroit-based Kraemer Design Group is applying its expertise as the architect, interior designer and historic consultant. Financing for the project is being made possible through Uptown Reinvestment Corp. (URC), the project developer, Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC), Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Skypoint Ventures and Local Initiatives Support Corp., along with Huntington Bank and Old National Bank.
