RALEIGH, N.C. (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
Ground breaking ceremonies were held for the One Glenwood development project which will include Origin Hotel.
“We are eager to join One Glenwood and become part of this special community,” said Walker Thrash, partner at The Thrash Group, who is developing the hotel. “Origin Hotel will incorporate elements that complement the aesthetic of the region and celebrate the surrounding culture. We are also excited for our guests to experience the key programs that we have built our brand on. Origin LIFE focuses on our daily DO List that suggests the best places to eat, drink, and do. Origin BALANCE is our wellness program, where we look for every way imaginable to bring health-conscious options to the properties. And, Origin COMMUNITY is the foundation of our local culture. It encompasses our outreach programs, local partnerships - everything that keeps the experience authentic.”
The boutique hotel brand, Origin, exudes an experience-driven lifestyle with a passion for local culture. Each property has an individual spirit, and all are focused on connections between staff and guests. In addition to the special attributes of the hotel itself, guests will enjoy ultimate amenities when they step out the front door into Glenwood South, the Warehouse District, and into One Glenwood, a walkable, vibrant mixed-use destination.
Upon completion, the 126-room hotel will include retail, a communal lobby complete with a full restaurant and bar, as well as meeting space. The interior décor of the hotel will celebrate Raleigh’s vibrant communities, and its modern-day feel.
Scheduled to open 2019, Origin Raleigh is the third hotel in this new brand. The first hotel, Origin Red Rocks, is located in Golden, Colorado and scheduled to open Summer 2018. The property will be managed by the Boutique + Lifestyle division of Louisville based Schulte Hospitality Group, a division of Schulte Companies.
“Origin Hotel will serve as a home away from home for guests interested in fully immersing themselves in local culture while finding their own unique adventures.” said Martin Hanson, President, Schulte Boutique + Lifestyle.
“During our creation of the One Glenwood development, it was important for us to select a hotel developer and operator with not only a proven track record, but an eye for creating something different. Origin will be the first boutique hotel in downtown Raleigh, and will offer guests of the development an experience that other hotels lack.” Said Ryan Blair, Vice President, Heritage Properties.
