Construction is nearing completion on Kentucky’s Origin Lexington, an independent 120-room hotel expected to open this summer. The team behind the project includes The Thrash Group as developer, contractor, architect and interior designer and Pyramid Hotel Group as operator.

Origin Lexington will mark the second location for the Origin Hotel brand. Launched by Mississippi-based The Thrash Group in 2018 with the Origin Red Rocks in Golden, Colo., the brand is expecting to open locations in Raleigh, N.C., and Westminster, Colo., later this year.

"We carefully select sites in communities that have energy and activity," Walker Thrash, partner at The Thrash Group, said in a statement. "The Summit at Fritz Farm fits that perfectly. Our guests want to explore local favorites and enjoy the uniqueness of every place they visit."
