For years, the motels along the western side of Tucson’s I-10 freeway have been a less than desirable destination. In 2017, a developer out of california saw an opportunity to introduce a higher end temporary stay facility that could serve the multiple events that this area supports. The developer wanted to take the motel and bring it back to its original form and celebrate the mid-century modern foundation that it was originally designed in. The existing lobby was gutted and transformed into a modern lobby and support spaces for clientele. This space then connected to a newly designed pool area that included tiered seating, gardens and exterior lawn space.
