Acumen Selected to Re-Develop Historic Hotel Phillips

Acumen Development Partners is proud to announce our involvement with the redevelopment of the historic Hotel Phillips in downtown Kansas City, MO. The property will be undergoing an extensive renovation and converting to a Curio Collection by Hilton in the spring of 2017. It is located at the corner of 12th Street and Baltimore Avenue in the Financial District and within walking distance of the Power & Light District, Sprint Center and Kansas City Convention Center.

The 20 story building was originally constructed in 1931 and has since been continuously operating as a hotel. In the 1970's, the property completed a renovation which significantly decreased the total room count from 400 to 217. Since 1979, it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The conversion will involve a unique signature restaurant, speakeasy bar, eclectic coffee shop, and a return of the building's historic elements. All new HVAC systems and technological upgrades will be implemented as well.

The property is owned by Arbor Lodging Partners and managed by NVN Hotels, an affiliate of Arbor.
