The Full-Service, Luxury Hotel in the River District will Remain Open throughout the Remodel
Fort Myers, Fla. (Jan. 19, 2021) – Sarasota-based construction management firm and commercial contractor, Firmo Construction, has been hired to transform downtown Fort Myers’ Hotel Indigo into a Tapestry Collection, Hilton’s newest upscale brand, over the next year. In partnership with hospitality and development company from Savannah, Ga., HOS Management, Firmo will execute a full, top-to-bottom conversion of the eight-story property.
“With the exceptional amount of migration to Florida recently, it’s encouraging to see this growth and development in the region. Our partnership with HOS Management will be a transformative conversion for this property, located in the heart of Fort Myers’ River District,” said Eric Collin, President of Firmo Construction. “Firmo is ready to bring decades of innovative building methods, construction expertise, and work with the Hilton brand to deliver this full-service luxury hotel tailored to the unique community of Fort Myers.”
With approximately 6,500 square feet to renovate per floor and 72 guest rooms, Firmo will be working alongside interior designer, Z-Space Design, and architect Tim Miller of Dimensions, Inc. while applying applying a phasing method throughout construction as the hotel transforms into a sophisticated new look. With this technique, different floors will remain open to guests as the remodel progresses, allowing the hotel to remain fully operational throughout its renovation. When finished, the new Tapestry Collection by Hilton will feature 96 uniquely designed, upscale guest suites, a fully renovated rooftop pool and bar, and a new commercial kitchen and lobby bar for an expanded food and beverage offering.
“Our team is excited to continue our collaboration with Firmo Construction on this new opportunity to bring vibrant, sophisticated accommodations to downtown Fort Myers,” said Krishan Gandhi, Vice President of Development of HOS Management. “The conversion to this Tapestry Collection by Hilton is positioned to bring guests and visitors of this growing city an unparalleled experience, which is a pillar at the core of our mission for each of our hotel properties.”
The second partnership in the City of Fort Myers for the two companies, Firmo Construction and HOS Management are also collaborating on a Hampton Inn by Hilton project located on Cleveland Avenue, a main traffic artery of Fort Myers, which will feature 118 guest rooms, an outdoor pool and patio, and a fitness center. Construction on this property began in October after a small groundbreaking ceremony.
