Eco-friendly hotel coming to Cleveland?

According to an article in today's Plain Dealer, a five-star, $48-million eco-friendly hotel and condo project is slated for downtown Cleveland. The 1 Hotel, from the Starwood Capital Group, will be located at West 11th Street and Main Avenue. It is scheduled to open in 2010, and will include about 150 rooms, a spa and meeting space, as well as a restaurant featuring local and organic foods and reportedly operated by a nationally known restaurateur. "The idea of sustainability and environmental sensitivity is something that is central to this project, so it's a very good fit culturally," developer Scott Wolstein said about the project. The 1 Hotel brand, envisioned as a luxury hotel with an environmental conscience, is designed to be "a certified green building, constructed with the environment in mind and an eye on saving energy."
