Hagadone Hospitality Co. has obtained building permits for a $2.5 million remodeling project at the Coeur d'Alene Resort, records on file at the city of Coeur d'Alene show.
Records show the project involves remodeling a total of 35,300 square feet of ground floor space in the 18-floor downtown Coeur d'Alene hotel, located at 115 S. Second, on the north shore of Lake Coeur d'Alene.
The resort's former Shore Lounge area will be converted into a conference center with a seating capacity of 240 people, says Ted Lantzy, the city of Coeur d'Alene's commercial plans examiner. That part of the project also will include kitchen upgrades, he says.
The overall project also will include remodeling the main lobby and adjacent Whispers Lounge, as well as expanding the pool and fitness areas, he says.
T.W. Clark Construction LLC, of Spokane Valley, is the contractor on the project, and Longwell+Trapp Architects PLLC, of Hayden, designed it.
Jon Huettl, a project manager for T.W. Clark, declines to comment on the project except to say that work was to start this week.
The resort referred inquiries about the project to an executive at Hagadone Hospitality's parent company, The Hagadone Corp., who couldn't be reached for comment.
A reference to the project on the resort's website says it will enable it to "bring more business groups" to the city of Coeur d'Alene.
The project is the third phase of upgrades valued at about $6 million that coincide with the 25th anniversary of the resort, Lantzy says.
The first phase, which was completed last June, was an event center at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Golf Course, which included constructing an 11,000-square-foot meeting facility, putting in a swimming pool with a cabana overlooking Lake Coeur d'Alene, and remodeling the golf course's pro shop.
The second phase, which was completed recently, involved converting the resort's rooftop pool area into an outdoor banquet venue, installing a new elevator to serve it, mechanical upgrades, and replacing the roof, Lantzy says.
T.W. Clark was the contractor on the second phase, and an affiliate company, Clark Construction LLC, was the contractor on the first phase. Longwell+Trapp also designed the first and second phases of the remodel.
