Aloft Hotel Planned for Columbia’s Vista


vista aloftLexington Hospitality has submitted plans for an Aloft Hotel to be built in Columbia’s Congaree Vista neighborhood.

The proposal, which calls for construction of a five-story, 108-room building, is on the agenda of the Design/Development Review Commission meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday in City Council chambers.

The Aloft, considered a boutique hotel because of its size and upscale amenities, is planned for the corner of Lady and Lincoln streets, next to the city-owned, 675-car Lincoln Street Parking Garage.

The design plan proposes that the hotel’s exterior feature three primary materials, with the bulk of it being brick. It will also feature a continuous base of cast stone along Lady Street and on the west elevation. Additional materials include aluminum panels above street level as well as cement board panels as an accent on Lincoln Street and the rear elevation.

The east portion of the parcel will showcase an outdoor patio and pedestrian alley leading to the parking garage. The alley will be the primary route from the parking garage to the Vista. Developers have already hired a landscape architect to design the space.
