Cody Foster partnered with Plainville, Kan. businessman Chuck Comeau of the Liberty Group to transform four historic buildings in downtown Topeka, Kan., into a 79-room boutique hotel and restaurant.
The project team also includes David Bowd, founder of Salt Hotels of New York.
Involved in the development are architectural firm Lake Flato, Architect 1 and McPherson Contractors.
Cyrus Hotel and Holliday Public House will occupy the four existing historic structures of 912, 916, 918 and 920 Kansas Avenue, along with an additional five-story tower. The venue will have over 10,000 square feet of event and meeting space.
Located one block from the Capitol building on the redesigned and greenscaped Kansas Avenue, the hotel and restaurant will honor Topeka's founder, Cyrus K. Holliday.
