120-Room Carbon-Positive Hotel Westland by Urban Villages to Open Summer 2024 in Seattle

SEATTLE (May 30, 2023) – Urban Villages, a leading real estate developer and environmental steward, is pleased to announce the summer 2024 opening of Hotel Westland, a carbon positive, adaptive reuse hotel in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square neighborhood.

Construction recently began on the 120-room hotel to modernize the historic structure, giving it a second life and ensuring it lasts for generations to come. Operated by Aparium Hotel Group and architecturally designed by The Miller Hull Partnership with interiors by Curioso, the boutique lifestyle hotel will highlight historic character maintained from the building’s 1907 construction, modern guest rooms and amenities, Pioneer Square’s first rooftop bar, and a signature restaurant, fueled by an authentic connection to community and Seattle’s deep-rooted history.

Hotel Westland is a part of RailSpur, a carbon positive micro-district that is positioned to be one of the country’s most significant adaptive reuse developments, which consists of three main historic buildings and the activated alleyways that connect them.

“We’re proud to develop Hotel Westland as the second carbon positive hotel in our portfolio and in the country,” says Grant McCargo, Urban Villages’ Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The greenest building is one you don’t have to build from the ground up. With adaptive reuse, we’ve modernized the building and honored its heritage, all while minimizing environmental impact.”
