The former Lexington Hotel located on the northwest corner of West Portland Street and North Central Avenue in Phoenix is being transformed into the Found:Re Phoenix. The Found:Re Phoenix, which is eyeing a 2016 opening, is being developed by Habitat Metro and Bond Partners.
Design-wise, the Found:Re property will have an industrial, raw design and aesthetic throughout, with furnishings and touches such as concrete floors, exposed ceilings and floating beds.
The 104-room hotel, managed by Urban Quarters Hospitality, will contain an art component led by curator Michael Oleskow, who will be sourcing art of various mediums by local artists. The collection is intended to complement the property’s décor, an on-site art gallery and exterior art display.
The hotel will also have an on-site restaurant.
The Found:Re property will be located near art galleries, the Phoenix Art Museum and creative pop-ups. It will also be in close proximity to Roosevelt Row, across the street from the Roosevelt Valley Metro light rail station and Portland Street Park.
