Peebles and P&A were selected from three finalist proposals based on criteria including a sensitive approach to the historic preservation of the Family Court’s interiors and façade, as well as strong inclusion of minority participation in the ownership and development of the project. The Peebles Corporation, the country’s largest African-American real estate development company, has selected minority-owned McKissack & McKissack to lead the hotel’s construction.

Kimpton already has two Philadelphia properties located in transformed historic locations: Hotel Monaco in the former Lafayette Building, and Hotel Palomar in the former Architects Building.
