Richmond, Virginia’s first boutique lifestyle hotel has already gained a notable standing as both an upscale getaway for visitors and a popular destination for locals. The building dates to 1916 and originally housed J.B. Mosby & Co., a luxury dry goods store. 3north carefully preserved the original structure using State and Federal historic tax credits, and renovated the building to the owners’ needs. The hotel features 70 guestrooms and 4 penthouse suites as well as a restaurant and bar, Maple & Pine. Particularly unique to the project, the hotel is a hybrid of equal parts boutique hotel and contemporary art gallery. Accessible from the lobby is an in-house art gallery, owned and operated by the hotel owner. The project has further proved its status as a cultural hub for travelers and Richmonders-alike with the opening of its rooftop bar. Standing nine stories, the project offers one of the most accessible views of downtown Richmond in the entire city.
