Bottleworks Hotel to replace West Elm project in Indianapolis

US: The Bottleworks Hotel, managed by Geronimo Hospitality Group, will be replacing the West Elm hotel as part of a $300 million redevelopment project in Indianapolis.

Overseeing the project on 850 Massachusetts Avenue is Hendricks Commercial Properties. Work has been underway for several months, with Hendricks saying that most of the infrastructure work has been completed on the lower two floors of the three-storey hotel.

The site falls home to former bottling plant buildings, in which the company is transforming an old Coca-Cola factory into an "iconic boutique hotel to be enjoyed by the Indianapolis community."

Hotel and restaurant operator, Geronimo Hospitality Group, will manage the Bottleworks Hotel. Geronimo is currently handling the Ironworks Hotel at Keystone Crossing, also in Indianapolis.

Michael McClain will become the new general manager of Ironworks as Amy Isbell-Williams takes on the same role at the Bottleworks.

The decision to scrap the West Elm hotel comes as its parent company, Williams-Sonoma Inc., re-evaluates its plans for hotel developments across the country.

An ongoing legal battle between Williams-Sonoma and DDK Hotels LLC (the hotel management company involved in the West Elm concept) has resulted in other West Elm projects being put on hold elsewhere in the United States.
