Project Description &
HRI is redeveloping the 1925 Liberty Title Building, located one block from historic Philadelphia City Hall square and adjacent to the new Philadelphia convention center, into a 179-key Aloft by Starwood hotel. Originally constructed as the headquarters for the Liberty Title and Trust Company, the building had several owners before it was purchased by HRI’s partners in 2008. Many historic features remain, primarily in the main bank lobby, which will be transformed into the new hotel lobby and WXYZ bar. The converted building will also offer guests an outdoor deck, meeting space, and direct internal access to the convention center. Inspired by the vibrant public mural program in Philadelphia, the hotel will feature large scale art installations and a rotating art wall featuring local artists.
